Flexible Dual TCP/UDP Streaming for H.264 HD Video Over WLANs
High Definition video streaming over WLANs faces many challenges because video data requires not only data integrity but also frames have strict playout deadline. Traditional streaming methods that rely solely on either UDP or TCP have difficulties meeting both requirements because UDP incurs packet loss while TCP incurs delay. This paper proposed a new streaming method called Flexible Dual-TCP/UDP Streaming Protocol (FDSP) that utilizes the benefit of both UDP and TCP. The FDSP takes advantage of the hierarchical structure of the H.264/AVC syntax and uses TCP to transmit important syntax elements of H.264/AVC video and UDP to transmit non-important elements. The proposed FDSP is implemented and validated under different wireless network conditions. Both visual quality and delay results are compared against pure-UDP and pure-TCP streaming methods. Our results show that FDSP effectively achieves a balance between delay and visual quality, thus it has advantage over traditional pure-UDP and pure-TCP methods.
