This paper reports the application of load balancing algorithms on Internet video and audio media server. We took into account two server architectures: centralized and distributed load balancing; and five load balancing algorithms: random, round-robin, adaptive bidding, diffusion, and state change broadcast. The startup time and system distance were measured in the experiments. The results show that the response time of distributed load balancing is less than the centralized load balancing architecture. And algorithms that use more load information can balance the load on video and audio media server better, but produce more response time.
