HTTP adaptive streaming has become the technology of choice for delivering
video content over the Internet. In this talk, we will review the most
popular and developing algorithms for rate adaptation, as well as the
existing and emerging media format standards. We will also touch on the
ongoing and future problems in the streaming media research.
