Data-Prefetching Scheme Based on Playback Delay and Positioning Satisfaction in Peer-To-Peer Video-On-Demand System
AbstractAs one of the most important applications in peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, the video-on-demand (VoD) system freely supports video cassette recorder (VCR) operation for users. However, the users may experience significant playback delay after frequent VCR operations in the VoD system, which will affect the quality of experience (QoE) of the users. Hence, selecting an appropriate data-prefetching strategy to support better VCR operation is an important approach to improve the QoE. This paper proposes a data-prefetching strategy (DSA) to determine the most suitable anchor interval by considering the playback delay and positioning satisfaction. According to the DSA, we use the multiple-attribute decision-making (MADM) theory to model the selection of intervals of prefetching data blocks (i.e., anchor interval) and the technique for ordering preference by similarity to an ideal solution (TOPSIS) algorithm to solve the MADM. The simulation results show that the DSA strategy obtains higher positioning satisfaction than the existing schemes, which is approximately 60% higher than the anchor points, popular parts of video, and user interests (API)-based method. Moreover, with the increase in network bandwidth, the DSA strategy can minimize the playback delay after VCR operation using relative few extra bandwidths. View Full-Text
