In this paper, we propose a streaming platform which we call the STARCast. This platform enables to provide streaming service by overcoming some of the limitations and complexities of current network environments. The STARCast node consists of two types of independent data plane, the one is streaming control plane, which manages some information for connection by the resource manager, the another is streaming data plane, which enables to transfer the all kinds of streaming data without relation of their kinds, and distribute it efficiency use of ALM (application layer multicast) which can be adapted the topology for the number of nodes and requirement from user application. The STARCast also enables adaptation to various types of address spaces such as those of NAT and IPv6, and various transport networks so that streaming services can be offered anywhere on the Internet. And this proposed platform enables to provide and receive the streaming service all over the Internet using any computers ubiquitously. As an function of the STARCast for streaming, we discuss the method for application layer multicast which enables to adapt node character and environment. In this paper, we show the its availability by the simulation.
