Little performance data currently exists for streaming high-quality Internet video to residential users. Data on streaming performance will provide valuable input to the design of new protocols and applications, such as congestion control and error-correction schemes, and sizing playout buffers in video receivers. This paper presents measurements of streaming real-time UDP traffic to a number of residential users, and discusses the basic characteristics of the data.
