Abstract

HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) protocols have become the de-facto solutions to deliver video over the Internet, mainly due to their ability to limit video freezing and thus enhance consumers’ Quality of Experience (QoE). Nevertheless, they do not have the possibility to improve the actual delivered video quality, limited by the available throughput between the delivering server and the client. Compared with this single-server approach, multiple-server streaming offers the opportunity to ob- tain enhanced QoE by benefiting from expanded bandwidth, link diversity and reliability in distributed streaming infrastructures. We present a prototype for a pragmatic evolving HAS-compliant streaming solution, simultaneously using several servers.
