Adding a new dimension to HTTP Adaptive Streaming through multiple-source capabilities

Abstract : Adaptive streaming protocols over HTTP (HAS), such as MPEG-DASH, have become the de-facto solutions to deliver video over the Internet. By avoiding buffer stalling, HAS increases end-user's Quality of Experience (QoE). These solutions always bind a client to one server. We propose to extend HAS capabilities to multiple-source streaming, which offers the opportunity to obtain higher QoE by exploiting expanded bandwidth and link diversity in distributed streaming infrastructures. We expose a pragmatic evolving DASH-compliant solution for dynamic adaptive Multiple-Source Streaming over HTTP (MS-Stream) that simultaneously utilizes several servers. We validated our approach using network profiles from DASH Industry Forum and Internet users. Our solution is compared to optimal-yet practically unfeasible-DASH solutions in multiple-source environments and over several QoE criteria. Results show the QoE gains of using MS-Stream against DASH; an online demonstration of our work is available.
