—This paper presents an online streaming strategy
for SVC (Scalable Video Coding).The crucial technique
adopted is the combination of network bandwidth prediction
and rating mechanism for different streaming options. An
SVM (Support Vector Machine) algorithm is used for
prediction of network bandwidth variation, with which the
system then evaluates every strategy that can be made at that
time. The experiment shows this strategy not only cut down
video playing back interruption times, but also improves
overall video quality users perceive.
