The application layer multicast for streaming media is one of the hot and difficult problems in the field of network video broadcast. At first, the paper analyzed the principles and performances of classical application layer multicast models suitable for streaming media. Then we pointed out the application occasion of every model and the advantages and disadvantages. At last, a cluster splitting algorithm based on NICE is proposed. Simulation experiments show that the algorithm is simple and efficient, and able to adapt well to real-time streaming media applications.
