Let me Decrypt your Beauty: Real-time Prediction of Video Resolution and Bitrate for Encrypted Video Streaming

Abstract : The dynamic adaptation of the video quality induced by HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) technology introduces new Quality of Experience (QoE) metrics beyond re-buffering. In this work we address the problem of real-time QoE monitoring of HAS, focusing on the continuous prediction of video resolution and average video bitrate, for the particular case of YouTube. Through empirical evaluations over a large video dataset, we demonstrate that it is possible to accurately predict the specific video resolution, as well as the average video bitrate, both in real time, and using a time granularity as small as one new prediction every second, not achieved by other proposals in the literature.
