A true video-on-demand (VoD) system lets users view any video program, at any time, and perform any VCR-like user interactions. To reduce the per-user video delivery cost, multiple users may be batched and share the same video stream. Existing sharing schemes do not allow true VoD. A new protocol, called Split and Merge (SAM), does allow true VoD. SAM also provides an innovative way to merge these individuals back into the batching streams when they resume normal play mode
