Dynamic and Dual Streaming Methods for H.264 Video and Parallel Performance Modeling

Traditional approaches to streaming H.264 video over a network typically rely on a single method of transport (i.e., reliable or unreliable) and/or use static values for parameters that can have a significant negative impact on the perceptual quality of the received video. In this work, we introduce a dynamic method for wireless channel selection during video streaming, and explore the latency and QoE improvements yielded by the FDSP dual streaming method. Additionally, we observe that handling the increased workload that results from these dynamic methods without a counterproductive impairment of streaming performance requires efficient use of the multiple cores typically present in both sender and receiver (or server and client). For this reason, we introduce a performance cost model which can be used to guide the parallelization of specific types of client or server-side streaming components - specifically, programs containing non-DOALL loops that have inter-iteration data dependences which constrain their parallelism.
