Title: VBR Video Streaming over Wireless Networks
Authors: Ji, Guang

Keywords: video streaming
Issue Date: 12-Feb-2010
Abstract: Video streaming applications over wireless networks have turned out to be immensely popular recently. In this thesis, we first study the buffering schemes for the VBR video streaming in heterogeneous wireless networks. An analytical framework is presented to derive the expected number of jitters and average buffering delay. Through experimenting with a wide range of buffering schemes, we quantify the bene¯t of incorporating user location information in streaming over heterogeneous wireless networks. Second, we consider the delivery of scalable VBR video streams over wireless channels. We propose adaptive rate control algorithms to improve the combined system performance of video frame quality and playout smoothness based on the feedback information of wireless network estimation, buffer content and playback situation. The proposed adaptive rate control algorithms provide significantly improved streaming quality compared with the non-control policy.
