As streaming videos are becoming increasingly popular, it is important to understand the end-to-end streaming system and to develop effective algorithms for quality control. In this paper, we address the problem of rate control for streaming videos with a control-theoretic approach. Among the various control knobs, video bit rate is one of the most effective in the sense that it has a direct impact on the interaction between the video coder and network system. While increasing rate reduces the… CONTINUE READING
