Competition among adaptive video streaming players severely reduces user-QoE. This occurs as resource allocation becomes unfair. We refer to this as the bottleneck link problem. The resource imbalance creates severe user annoyance such as screen flickering and video freezes. However, there are numerous conditions that amplifies the problems. Some of these are well documented in the literature but we intend to highlight the major conditions at a bottleneck link in household LANs. These are
more &raquo; ... arying bandwidth, TCP long-lived flows, players pausing, starting/re-starting and stopping and increases in player numbers. We explore these conditions and evaluate the performance of heuristic adaptive video players. ELASTIC and PANDA players are evaluated. Experimental setup includes the TAPAS player and emulated network conditions. The results show that players are well suited to specific conditions. received the M.Sc., and M.Phil. degrees from the University of the West Indies.
