In this paper, we describe a hybrid sender and receiver-based adaptation scheme for multicast transmission of multimedia data, which we call SRAMT (Sender-Receiver based Adaptation scheme for Multicast Transmission). The most prominent features of SRAMT are its distributed (to sender and receivers) transmission rate estimation algorithm and its innovative RTT (Round Trip Time) estimation algorithm based on one-way delay measurements. With the use of SRAMT, we ensure that sender will transmit

We evaluate SRAMT through a number of simulations and compare it with other schemes available to the literature. Main target of the simulations was the examination of SRAMT behavior to a heterogeneous group of receivers and its behavior against TCP connections.
