Adaptive Video Pacing Method Based on the Prediction of Stochastic TCP Throughput

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Many of the video streaming services on the Internet and mobile networks use HTTP/TCP for video transport. Video streaming clients are generally designed to download a sufficient amount of data to avoid playback interruption caused by the lower TCP throughput. Storing more video data than necessary may generate a large amount of wasted traffic when users quit playing video before all of the downloaded video data are played. To prevent downloading unnecessary video data, HTTP downloading with just-in-time delivery features, called video pacing, is focused on. However, video pacing may cause playback discontinuity, resulting from a decrease in the playout buffer size.
