Abstract

Native IP multicast would be the best solution to distribute live streaming contents among various destinations since the real-time nature of such applications usually imposes strict delay constraints. Application Layer Multicast (ALM) platforms are emerging as a solution to overcome the well- known lack of a globally supported native multicast. Since the development of ALM applications is slowed by complexity and portability issues, we designed an open source C library framework that takes care of RTP/RTCP technical details and fosters a modular and higher level design. Besides it frees ALM developers from spending time in porting operations from Unix to Windows operating systems.
