We present high{performance decentralized prefetching protocols for the delivery of VBR video on demand (VoD) from servers to clients across a packet{switched network. The protocol gives constant perceptual quality for high link utilizations. It also allows for immediate commencement of the video upon user request and near instantaneous response to viewer interactions such as pause, resume and temporal jumps. The protocol requires that (1) the client has a moderate amount of memory dedicated to… CONTINUE READING
