With the rapid growth of wireless networks and great success of Internet video, wireless video services are expected to be widely deployed in the near future. As different types of wireless networks are converging into all IP networks, i.e., the Internet, it is important to study video delivery over the wireless Internet. This paper proposes a novel end-system based adaptation protocol called Wireless Hybrid Adaptation Layered Multicast (WHALM) protocol for layered video multicast over wireless…

End-to-end TCP-friendly streaming protocol and bit allocation for scalable video over wireless Internet
This paper proposes an end-to-end transmission control protocol (TCP)-friendly multimedia streaming protocol for wireless Internet, namely WMSTFP, where only the last hop is wireless and proposes a novel loss pattern differentiated bit allocation scheme, while applying unequal loss protection for scalable video streaming over wireless Internet.
An end-to-end adaptation protocol for layered video multicast using optimal rate allocation
Simulation and numerical results show that HALM noticeably improves the degree of fairness, and interacts with TCP traffic better than static allocation based protocols, and is fully compatible with the best-effort Internet infrastructure.
Receiver-Driven Layered Multicast
The RLM protocol is described, its performance is evaluated with a preliminary simulation study that characterizes user-perceived quality by assessing loss rates over multiple time scales, and the implementation of a software-based Internet video codec is discussed.
Multirate video multicast over the Internet: an overview
A comprehensive survey on multirate video multicast over the best effort Internet is presented and various trade-offs based on some important design issues and performance criteria, such as bandwidth economy, adaptation granularity, and coding complexity are studied.
Real-Time Internet Video Using Error Resilient Scalable Compression and TCP-Friendly Transport Protocol
We introduce a point to point real-time video transmission scheme over the Internet combining a low-delay TCP-friendly transport protocol in conjunction with a novel compression method that is error
End-to-end differentiation of congestion and wireless losses
ZigZag and the hybrid algorithm are the fairest among all LDAs, and all of the LDAs are reasonably fair when competing with TCP, and their fairness among flows using the same LDA depends on the network topology.
RTP: A Transport Protocol for Real-Time Applications
RTP provides end-to-end network transport functions suitable for applications transmitting real-time data over multicast or unicast network services and is augmented by a control protocol (RTCP) to allow monitoring of the data delivery in a manner scalable to large multicast networks.
