In this paper we propose a scheme to provide inter­
active functions through active buffer management at
the client side for staggered multicast near VOD sys­
tems. The scheme uses client side buffering in a novel
fashion that relies on the simultaneous availability of
``past'', ``present'' and ``future'' parts of a video and
lets the client selectively prefetch segments from mul­
ticast channels based on the observation of the play
