Low Overhead Container Format for Adaptive Streaming

Current segmented HTTP streaming systems provide scalable and quality adaptive video delivery services to a huge number of users. In this paper, the authors present an appropriate way of coding the segments and a simple multimedia container format that is optimized for adaptive streaming and video composition over HTTP. They show that their format is sufficiently advanced to contain any payload type, while being trivial to parse and translate to other container formats. Additionally, they show that their format is second to none in terms of overhead, without incurring any penalties on live streaming.
