MPEG-DASH (MPEG Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) is an international standard for video playback. In MPEG-DASH, the user perceived performance of video playback is determined by the interaction of ABR algorithms on higher layer (application layer) and TCP algorithms on lower layer (transport layer). In this paper, we evaluate several promising combinations of ABR algorithms in the application layer and TCP algorithms in the transport layer and show that carefully selected combinations can
more » ... d combinations can improve fairness among users. And we identify specific features of combinations which bring improvement of fairness.
