In this paper we propose a hybrid TCP/UDP transport, specifically for H.264/AVC encoded video, as a compromise between the delay-prone TCP and the loss-prone UDP. When implementing the hybrid approach, we argue that the playback at the receiver often need not be 100% perfect, provided that a certain level of quality is assured. Reliable TCP is used to transmit and guarantee delivery of the most important packets. This allows use of additional features in the H.264/AVC standard which… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • When implementing the hybrid approach, we argue that the playback at the receiver often need not be 100% perfect, provided that a certain level of quality is assured.
  • We demonstrate the advantage to using B-frames when encoding an H.264/AVC video stream, and show thorough experimental results an improvement in quality of 1.04dB on average, and a 18.6% saving in bandwidth when compared to an encoded video which uses P-frames alone.
