Paper Abstract

In this paper, the problem of integrating scalable media encoding mechanisms with emerging solutions/protocols for media streaming is addressed. In this, we consider the cases of scalable media encoding technologies, trying to combine them with emerging protocols and mechanisms for transmission rate adaptation. An architecture comprising of a scalable media encoder supported by DCCP transport protocol is proposed. The proposal introduces a buffer management mechanism that takes advantage of the rate adaptation features of the scalable media encoding for complementing DCCPs' inherent congestion control.
