A lot of people around the world commute using public transportation and would like to spend this time viewing streamed video content such as news or sports updates. However, mobile wireless networks typically suffer from severe bandwidth fluctuations, and the networks are often completely unresponsive for several seconds, sometimes minutes. Today, there(More)
A well known challenge with mobile video streaming is fluctuating bandwidth. As the client devices move in and out of network coverage areas, the users may experience varying signal strengths, competition for the available resources and periods of network outage. These conditions have a significant effect on video quality. In this paper, we present a video(More)
In this dataset paper, we present and make available real-world measurements of the throughput that was achieved at the application layer when adaptive HTTP streaming was performed over 3G networks using mobile devices. For the streaming sessions, we used popular commute routes in and around Oslo (Norway) traveling with different types of public(More)
In this demo, we present DAVVI, a prototype of the next generation multimedia entertainment platform. It delivers multi-quality video content in a torrent-similar way like known systems from Move Networks, Microsoft and Apple do. However, it also provides a brand new, personalized user experience. Through applied search, personalization and recommendation(More)
Current segmented HTTP streaming systems provide scalable and quality adaptive video delivery services to a huge number of users. However, while they support a wide range of bandwidths and enable arbitrary content-based composition, their current formats have shortcomings like large overheads, live streaming delays, etc. We have therefore developed an(More)
One of the main challenges when streaming video to mobile devices is to handle fluctuating bandwidth and frequent network outages as the device is brought in and out of areas with network coverage. In this paper, we propose bitrate and video quality planning algorithms for mobile streaming scenarios using a GPS-based bandwidth-lookup service in order to(More)
The High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) communication protocol improves downlink performance on mobile networks and is currently being deployed in networks around the world. In Norway, two operators started offering this service in 2007. This article discusses performance measurements done in Telenor’s HSDPA network in Oslo in the context of video(More)
Locating content in existing video archives is both a time and bandwidth consuming process since users might have to download and manually watch large portions of superfluous videos. In this paper, we present two novel prototypes using an Internet based video composition and streaming system with a keyword-based search interface that collects, converts,(More)
Video streaming has become one of the most popular services on the Internet today. At the same time, mobile devices capable of displaying high-quality multimedia content have become common. In addition, most of these devices are equipped with multiple network interfaces. Smartphones and tablets can typically connect to both 3G networks (HSDPA) and WLANs,(More)
