DVMRP

(Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol) The first popular routing protocol to support multicast. Stemming from RIP and used in the Internet's Mbone (multicast backbone), DVMRP allows for tunneling multicast messages within unicast packets. It also supports rate limiting and distribution control based on destination address. Contrast with MOSPF and PIM.

As is known, because it is a distance vector protocol, DVMRP works with source trees (SPT).
MOSPF's link state technology converges faster and is less prone to looping during the convergence time than DVMRP, which suffers some of the same problems that the Internet's RIP protocol does when faced with topological changes in a redundant topology.
