Abstract

360-degree videos are becoming increasingly popular on commercial platforms. In this position paper, we propose a holistic research agenda aiming at improving the performance, resource utilization efficiency, and users' quality of experience (QoE) for 360° video streaming on commodity mobile devices. Based on a Field-of-View (FoV) guided approach that fetches only portions of a scene that users will see, our proposed research includes the following: robust video rate adaptation with incremental chunk upgrading, big-data-assisted head movement prediction and rate adaptation, novel support for multipath streaming, and enhancements to live 360° video broadcast. We also show preliminary results demonstrating promising performance of our proof-of-concept 360° video streaming system on which our proposed research are being prototyped, integrated, and evaluated.
