TCP based-user-parameters control for adaptive video streaming

Abstract : Nowadays, Media streaming services over TCP have become very popular because of the TCP’s reliability, which provides remarkable stability to the Internet. However, in order to offer a high media quality and a good user satisfaction, the media streaming service requires that transport protocols can be adapted continuously with the network parameters. However, the diversity, of terminals (i.e., tablet, smart phones, laptop … etc.) and their corresponding capabilities, means that users’ agnostic solutions are inefficient to cope with such diverse contexts. Indeed, the intrinsic characteristics and parameters of the terminal users (i.e., devices) need to be taken into account on the video streaming adaptation process. The classic adaptive video streaming services do not consider the user parameters on the adaptation process. In this paper, we propose an adaptive video streaming solution to improve the user satisfaction factor by adapting the TCP parameters according to the user’s parameters on mobile networks. The user satisfaction factor is calculated according to some metrics driven from the user’s quality of experience (QoE). The work is validated through our proposal based on a new mobile agent (which does all the work) developed on a Linux script platform and tested on different kinds of devices with different scenarios.
