To avoid overloading the Internet and starving TCP connections, multimedia flows using non-congestion controlled UDP need to be enhanced with congestion control mechanisms. In this paper, we present a general framework for achieving TCP-friendly congestion control called MLDA. Using MLDA, multimedia senders adjust their transmission rate in accordance with the network congestion state. Taking the heterogeneity of the Internet and the end systems into account, MLDA supports layered data transmission where the shape and number of the layers is determined dynamically based on feedback information generated by the receivers. Performance tests of MLDA as well as comparisons to other congestion control schemes suggest that MLDA achieves TCP-friendly congestion control on the one hand and is able to accommodate the needs of heterogeneous receivers on the other
