Track A: How to Optimize your Player's Adaptive Bitrate Algorithms

Streaming Summit

Wed. April 11

3:30 PM - 4:15 PM

Location:

Westgate Pavilion 1

Adaptive bitrate algorithms are paramount for delivering video adapted to today's multitude of content, devices and network conditions. Striking a balance between the achieving the highest quality possible without causing stalls is a complex task, and the optimal solution can vary greatly depending on business, region, bitrate and type of content. This presentation provides an initiation into ABR: how adaptive bitrate algorithms are built, what parameters are taken into account, and how to optimize your algorithms based on several considerations. We examine the bandwidth-and buffer-based algorithms used in production today as well as some exciting extensions that currently under development.
