Paper Abstract

The lack of a delay constraint in the transmission control protocol/Internet protocol scheme is a barrier for time- based media transmission over the Internet. Recently, this barrier has been overcome with the introduction of protocols such as real time protocol and real time streaming protocol. However, these new protocols do not address the issue of smooth time-based media delivery in a server/client environment. Approaches such as buffer control can alleviate the non-smooth delivery problem up to a certain extent, but they are vulnerable to long propagation delay. In this work, we propose a new approach for non-disruptive video playback on the client with a minimal amount of buffering. This is achieved through a combination of video frame insertion and multitasking threads for data reception and video playback. The major contribution of this work lies in system integration of networking and video compression techniques.
