Streaming services and visual communication services delivered over the Internet have become popular in recent years. In the future, broadband services using MPEG2/4 will become the dominant type. These services will require transport protocols that provide high quality and high throughput from end to end of the system. We propose a new transfer method that allows the network load to be adaptively balanced according to the network's state. We built a prototype of an actual MPEG2 streaming system and used it to estimate the effectiveness of this method.
