—Video compression techniques enable adaptive media streaming over heterogeneous links to end-devices. Scalable Video Coding (SVC) and Multiple Description Coding (MDC) represent well-known techniques for video compression with distinct characteristics in terms of bandwidth efficiency and resiliency to packet loss. In this paper, we present Scal-able(More)
In this paper we present datasets for both trace-based simulation and real-time testbed evaluation of Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (<i>DASH</i>). Our trace-based simulation dataset provides a means of evaluation in frameworks such as NS-2 and NS-3, while our testbed evaluation dataset offers a means of analysing the delivery of content over a(More)
The design of an adaptive video client for mobile users is challenged by the frequent changes in operating conditions. Such conditions present a seemingly insurmountable challenge to adaptation algorithms, which may fail to find a balance between video rate, stalls, and rate-switching. In an effort to achieve the ideal balance, we design OSCAR, a novel(More)
—HTTP streaming currently dominates Internet traffic. It is increasingly common that video players employ adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming strategies to maximise the user experience by selecting the highest video representation while targeting stall-free playback. Our interest lies in the common situation where a set of video flows are competing for access(More)
Bandwidth constriction and datagram loss are prominent issues that affect the perceived quality of streaming video over lossy networks, such as wireless. The use of layered video coding seems attractive as a means to alleviate these issues, but its adoption has been held back in large part by the inherent priority assigned to the critical lower layers and(More)
