An experimental evaluation of rate-adaptation algorithms in adaptive streaming over HTTP

  title={An experimental evaluation of rate-adaptation algorithms in adaptive streaming over HTTP},
  author={Saamer Akhshabi and Ali C. Begen and Constantinos Dovrolis},
Adaptive (video) streaming over HTTP is gradually being adopted, as it offers significant advantages in terms of both user-perceived quality and resource utilization for content and network service providers. In this paper, we focus on the rate-adaptation mechanisms of adaptive streaming and experimentally evaluate two major commercial players (Smooth Streaming, Netflix) and one open source player (OSMF). Our experiments cover three important operating conditions. First, how does an adaptive… CONTINUE READING
