Abstract: Summary. Novel network architectures such as overlay networks offer significant diversity that can compensate for the lack of strict quality of service in today's communication infrastructures. In order to take advantage of this diversity for delaysensitive media streaming applications, the network systems can employ efficient mechanisms based on source, channel and even network coding. In particular, fountain codes offer interesting benefits for streaming with server diversity. When they are used independent…
