Abstract
Transmission control protocol (TCP) with its well-established congestion control mechanism is the prevailing trans-
port layer protocol for non-real time data in current Internet Protocol (IP) networks. It would be desirable to transmit
any type of multimedia data using TCP in order to take advantage of the extensive operational experience behind TCP
in the Internet. However, some features of TCP including retransmissions and variations in throughput and delay,
although not catastrophic for non-real time data, may result in inefficiencies for video streaming applications. In this
paper, we propose an architecture which consists of an input buffer at the server side, coupled with the congestion con-
trol mechanism of TCP at the transport layer, for efficiently streaming stored video in the best-effort Internet. The pro-
