Bandwidth smoothing techniques for stored video perform en d-to-end workahead transmission of frames into the client playback buffer, in advance of their d isplay times. Such techniques are very effective in reducing the burstiness of the bandwidth requiremen ts for transmitting compressed, stored video. This paper addresses onlinebandwidth smoothing for a growing number of streaming video applications such as newscasts, sportscasts, and distance learning, whe re many clients may be willing to… CONTINUE READING
