Protocols for synchronizing data streams should be highly adaptive with regard to both changing network conditions as well as to individual user needs. The stream synchronization protocol we are going to describe in this paper supports any type of distribution of the stream group to be synchronized. It incorporates buffer level control mechanisms allowing an immediate reaction on overflow or underflow situations. Moreover, the proposed mechanism is flexible enough to support a variety of synchronization policies and allows to switch them dynamically during presentation. Since control messages are only exchanged when the network conditions actually change, the message overhead of the protocol is neglectable.
