This software tool aims at using overlay multicast to deliver multimedia contents to a group of users over the Internet. One key problem in overlay multicast is that a non-leaf node may leave the overlay multicast tree voluntarily and can cause the disruption of service to downstream nodes. This software implemented a proactive approach to tree recovery for dealing with the problem.
