An Adaptive Resource Allocation Strategy for Cloud based Video Streaming

Authors(2) :-Jayashree M. M, P. Damodharan

This paper is on video streaming using multiple resources. An adaptive scheme is applied to perform the resource allocation in terms of bandwidth and video memory in cloud based video streaming. Advances and commoditization of media generation devices enable capturing and sharing of any special event by multiple attendees. We propose a novel system to collect individual video streams (views) captured for the same event by multiple attendees, and combine them into multi-view videos, where viewers can watch the event from various angles, taking crowdsourced media streaming to a new immersive level. The simulation results demonstrate that this scheme generates an optimal and adaptive solution for resource allocation.
