Multimedia is nowadays the most important kind of information over the internet, due to the impressive growing of the web and streaming technologies. Although there are faster lines, the amount of potential users can exceed the actual available band width. In that way, scalable audio streaming makes it possible. However, error correction is left in a second level of importance for multimedia, using in some cases TCP, FEC (Forward Error Correction) that are useless in low bit rate coders or even nothing. Therefore, in this article a rhythm based error correction approach is presented. This solution can avoid important redundant information, leaving almost all the error processing at the decoder side, without any feedback to the sender.
