Title: INITIAL BITRATE SELECTION FOR A VIDEO DELIVERY SESSION
Abstract:
An initial bitrate is selected for a video delivery session by a user equipment (5, 200) performing, during a time window from initiation of a video player application in the user equipment (5, 200) up to selection of a video content, network measurements of a current condition of a network used to deliver the video content to the user equipment (5, 200). A respective initial buffer duration is provided for each bitrate available for the video content and where these respective initial buffer durations are predicted based on at least one network metric derived from the network measurements. An initial bitrate for delivering the video content over the network to the user equipment is selected based on the respective initial buffer durations.
