Scalable Video Adaptation in Wireless Home Networks with a Mixture of IPTV and VoD Users

In this paper, the authors propose a scalable video adaptation mechanism to improve the overall Quality of Service (QoS) in wireless home networks with a mixture of IPTV and VoD users. Unlike most of the existing studies on video streaming over WLANs, which usually focus on only one type of video streams, either stored videos or live videos, here they consider a mixture of live and stored videos. They make use of the pre-buffering time of VoD users in the rate adaptation for both IPTV and VoD users so as to achieve an overall optimal QoE for all the users.
