Abstract

We propose a probing-based channel adaptive video streaming method to provide seamless video transmission over the wireless 3G network. In the proposed method, the available bandwidth (AB) of the end-to-end path is estimated by analyzing RTP packets at the streaming client and the network/client buffer status (NCBS) is predicted by examining the RTCP receiver report (RR) and the application defined packet (APP) including the AB information. Using the estimated AB, the NCBS, and the stored multirate bitstream information, the proposed streaming method determines the next transmission bitrate precisely. Experimental results indicate that the proposed method can be effectively used for video streaming.
