Abstract
State of the art, real-time, rate-adaptive, multimedia applications
adjust their transmission rate to match the available network ca-
pacity. Unfortunately, this source-based rate-adaptation performs
poorly in a heterogeneous multicast environment because there is
no single target rate -- the conflicting bandwidth requirements of
all receivers cannot be simultaneously satisfied with one transmis-
sion rate. If the burden of rate-adaption is moved from the source
