Video streaming services using Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) as a transport layer protocol - represented by YouTube - are becoming increasingly popular and, accordingly, have come to account for a significant portion of internet traffic. TCP is greedy; that is, it tries to exhaust the entire bandwidth. Thus, video streaming over TCP tends to unnecessarily take bandwidth from competing traffic. In this paper, the authors first investigate the data transfer mechanisms of the current video streaming services using TCP and show that they perform data transfer at much higher rates than the video playback rate.
