Multiple Description-DASH: Pragmatic video streaming maximizing End-Users' Quality of Experience

Over the past few years, adaptive bitrate streaming protocols, such as DASH, have risen to enhance the End-Users' experience towards video consumption over the Internet. Current methods perform a smoother playback (i.e., fewer re-buffering states) trading off with quality fluctuations due to the client-server link state. The proposed work goes a step further and introduces an innovative lightweight streaming solution by taking advantage of bandwidth aggregation over multiple paths using multiple content sources at the same time. This pragmatic evolving approach outperforms the QoE delivered by current DASH-based or P2P-based solutions and leverages the scope of action made available to the media delivery chain actors. The proposed solution has been implemented and is compared to a DASH-based approach used in most existing VoD use-cases through a first set of experiments. Results demonstrate the strong advantages in terms of quality delivered at the End-User's side and buffer occupancy. Discussion on the necessary trade-offs is also tackled.
