The general craze for virtual environments, the potential of augmented reality applications and the announced revolution of the Internet world (Web 2.0, Web 3D.0) are key points for the emergence of an 'ambient' Web which will make it possible for users to communicate, collaborate, entertain, work and exchange content. In this context, content storage, delivery, and reproduction are among the essential points for the deployment of a highly scalable platform of wide reality. In this paper, we propose a self-scalable peer-to-peer architecture for the navigation in network-based virtual worlds. To reach this goal, we propose a fully distributed and adaptive streaming method that quickly adapts the reproduced content according to user interaction. Our content delivery strategy has been implemented and tested on a dedicated simulator with a large 3D city model. The presented results show the efficiency of our strategy in very critical conditions.
