Watching Video over the Web: Part 2: Applications, Standardization, and Open Issues
May/June 2011 (vol. 15 no. 3)
pp. 59-63

In this second part of a two-part article, the authors look into applications for streaming, including end-to-end mobile and in-home streaming. They contrast adaptive approaches to other video-delivery paradigms, discuss current standardization efforts, and highlight areas that require further research and investigation.
