dc.description.abstractInternet video streaming is a new way of distributing video over the Internet. It is an important component of Internet multimedia. Due to the increasing demand of multimedia on the World Wide Web, it has experienced explosive growth in the last several years. Video streaming involves video compression, protocols selection for streaming media, client/receiver buffer management and packet loss recovery. This thesis documents a new Internet video streaming system based on the state-of-the-art 3-D SPIHT video coder that achieves comparable coding performance to MPEG-4 while being embedded. The Reed-Solomon rate compatible erasure codes are used in our system to provide error control for alleviating the effect of packet loss. We first study the Internet packet dynamics and error patterns. Out of the suite of protocols for Internet video streaming, we select IP as the network-layer protocol. We compare UDP with TCP and point out that UDP is more appropriate for video streaming because of its low latency. We then examine different buffer schemes by implementing them in our video streaming system. We also study multithreading issues. Using MIME and Windows registry as the interface, we implement our video streaming system as a plug-in Web application. Video streaming experiments are conducted using both equal error protection (EEP) and unequal error protection (UEP) to protect the video content. UEP is shown to perform much better than EEP.en_US
