  Abstract:  There are many reasons for quality degradation of multimedia streams inside the network. Two of the most important ones are related to the UDP protocol and the Random-Drop policy implemented inside most of the routers currently deployed on the Internet. We intend to discuss, in this paper, some of multimedia streaming applications'' problems centered around the UDP protocol and Random-Drop policy. We also present some mech- anisms to alleviate these problems. More specically, we present a queue management algorithm PDQMAMS (Priority-Drop Queue Management Al- gorithm for Multimedia Streams) for supporting the quality of multimedia streams inside the network.
