Content-Aware Rate Control for Video Transmission With Buffer Constraints in Multipath Netw
Being an integral part of the network traffic, nowadays it's vital to design robust mechanisms to provide QoS for multimedia applications. The main goal of this paper is to provide an efficient solution to support content-aware video transmission mechanism with buffer underflow avoidance at the receiver in multi-path networks. Towards this, the authors introduce a content-aware time-varying utility function, where the quality impacts of video content is incorporated into its definition. Using the proposed utility function, they formulate a multi-path Dynamic Network Utility Maximization (DNUM) problem for the rate allocation of video streams, where it takes into account QoS demand of video streams in terms of buffer underflow avoidance.
