Rate-distortion optimized receiver-driven streaming over best-effort networks

This paper addresses the problem of streaming packetized media over a lossy

packet network, in a rate-distortion optimized way, where the rate-distortion

optimization is performed at the receiver. We show how the receiver should

compute which packets, if any, to request from the sender, in order to meet

a constraint on the transmission rate from the sender to the receiver while

minimizing the average end-to-end distortion. Experimental results show that

the receiver-driven system has performance within 1 dB of a sender-driven

system, while reducing the computational burden at the sender.
