Abstract

In this paper we present the Overlay Media Transport Protocol (OMTP), a novel yet simple protocol, which combines the fairness and congestion control of TCP with the minimalist approach of UDP to deliver high performance for multimedia streaming in a flexible and efficient way. No modification is needed on either TCP or UDP. Furthermore, OMTP can be used with in any type of TCP/IP based network and can be applied to single or multiple levels of multimedia stream quality.
