An Integrated Software Architecture for Bandwidth Adaptive Video Streaming

  title={An Integrated Software Architecture for Bandwidth Adaptive Video Streaming},
  author={I T.Arsan},
Video streaming over lossy IP networks is very important issues, due to the heterogeneous structure of networks. Infrastructure of the Internet exhibits variable bandwidths, delays, congestions and time-varying packet losses. Because of variable attributes of the Internet, video streaming applications should not only have a good end-to-end transport performance but also have a robust rate control, furthermore multipath rate allocation mechanism. So for providing the video streaming service…

Distributed Streaming via Packet Partitioning

Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed streaming framework provides superior performance over a conventional transmission scheme that performs proportional packet scheduling based only on the available network bandwidth.


An in-depth analysis of the media distortion evolution allows to define a low complexity algorithm for an optimal streaming strategy, and shows that a greedy allocation of rate along paths with increasing error probability leads to an optimal solution.

Streaming of Scalable Video from Multiple Servers using Rateless Codes

This paper presents a framework for efficiently streaming scalable video from multiple servers over heterogeneous network paths. We propose to use rateless codes, or Fountain codes, such that each

Bandwidth estimation: metrics, measurement techniques, and tools

A review of the recent bandwidth estimation literature focusing on underlying techniques and methodologies as well as open source bandwidth measurement tools is reviewed.

On multiple description streaming with content delivery networks

Results show that distortion reduction by about 20 to 40% can be realized even when the underlying CDN is not designed with MDC streaming in mind, and for certain topologies, MDC requires about 50% fewer CDN servers than conventional streaming techniques to achieve the same distortion at the clients.

pathChirp: Efficient available bandwidth estimation for network paths

This paper presents pathChirp, a new active probing tool for estimating the available bandwidth on a communication network path. Based on the concept of ''self-induced congestion,'' pathChirp

This paper investigates effective rate control algorithms for video encoders and adopted and compared the performance of two nonlinear approaches; radial basis function (RBF) estimation using a neural network-based approach and fuzzy logic control as a nonlinear feedback control.

Pathload: A Measurement Tool for End-to-End Available Bandwidth

This paper has developed an end-to-end active measurement tool, called pathload, that estimates the available bandwidth of a network path, and shows some experimental results that illustrate the tool's accuracy.
