Schonken, Nico (1999) Buffering strategies and bandwidth renegotiation for MPEG video streams. Masters thesis, Rhodes University.
This paper confirms the existence of short-term and long-term variation of the required bandwidth for MPEG videostreams. We show how the use of a small amount of buffering and GOP grouping can significantly reduce the effect of the short-term variation. By introducing a number of bandwidth renegotiation techniques, which can be applied to MPEG video streams in general, we are able to reduce the effect of long-term variation. These techniques include those that need the a priori knowledge of frame sizes as well as one that can renegotiate dynamically. A costing algorithm has also been introduced in order to compare various proposals against each other.
