A Bio-inspired HTTP-based Adaptive Streaming Player (accepted by bitmovin challenge)
The 2016 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME 2016) will be held in Seattle, USA from July 11 to July 15, 2016.
The IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME) has been the flagship multimedia conference sponsored by four IEEE societies since 2000. It serves as a forum to promote the exchange of the latest advances in multimedia technologies, systems, and applications from both the research and development perspectives of the circuits and systems, communications, computer, and signal processing communities. ICME also features an Exposition of multimedia products and prototypes.
Paper abstract (draft):
In order to streamline video content distribution on a myriad of platforms over heterogeneous networks, HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) has been increasingly adopted. In this paper we pilot a bio-inspired HAS optimisation design with the aim to maximise the overall use experiences of a video playback session. Evaluations conducted within a real-world Internet environment demonstrate the benefit of our design using quality indicators such as convergence time, start-up delay, average video rate, stability, and fairness.
