Paper Abstract

Despite the commercial success, video streaming remains a black art owing to its roots in proprietary commercial development. As such, many challenging technological issues that need to be addressed are not even well understood. The purpose of this paper is to review several important signal processing issues related to video streaming, and put them in the context of a client-server based media streaming architecture on the Internet. Such a context is critical, as we shall see that a number of solutions proposed by signal processing researchers are simply unrealistic for real-world video streaming on the Internet. We identify a family of viable solutions and evaluate their pros and cons. We further identify areas of research that have received less attention and point to the problems to which a better solution is eagerly sought by the industry.
