Adjusting forward error correction with temporal scaling for TCP-friendly streaming MPEG
Huahui Wu, Mark Claypool, Robert Kinicki
Pages: 315-337
DOI: 10.1145/1111604.1111605
New TCP-friendly constraints require multimedia flows to reduce their data rates under packet loss to that of a conformant TCP flow. To reduce data rates while preserving real-time playout, temporal scaling can be used to discard the encoded...

Layered unequal loss protection with pre-interleaving for fast progressive image transmission over packet-loss channels
Jianfei Cai, Xiangjun Li, Chang Wen Chen
Pages: 338-353
DOI: 10.1145/1111604.1111606
Most existing unequal loss protection (ULP) schemes do not consider the minimum quality requirement and usually have high computation complexity. In this research, we propose a layered ULP (L-ULP) scheme to solve these problems. In particular, we use...

An analytical study of peer-to-peer media streaming systems
Yi-Cheng Tu, Jianzhong Sun, Mohamed Hefeeda, Sunil Prabhakar
Pages: 354-376
DOI: 10.1145/1111604.1111607
Recent research efforts have demonstrated the great potential of building cost-effective media streaming systems on top of peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. A P2P media streaming architecture can reach a large streaming capacity that is difficult to...
