This letter presents a new rate adaptation algorithm for multicast sources that operate in priority-based IP networks. The algorithm represents the flow control component of our work on an architecture for video multicasting in priority-based IP networks. We show (through simulation results) that the algorithm meets our design goal of satisfying the quality-of-service (QoS) requirements of different video multicast receivers which have different networking capabilities.
