Real-time media applications often ignore ongoing
congestion if there is no option to reduce the rate. These
applications pose a threat to themselves and other traffic.
Reducing the transmission rate requires reducing the amount of
packets rather than spreading the transmission over a longer
interval. Loss-based congestion control mechanisms are
unsuitable for this requirement. Also this rate reduction with
popular video codecs, e.g. MPEG4, is often problematic. This
paper investigates the problems associated with real-time video
transmission over the Internet. We investigate a rate control
method minimizing delay and losses and report preliminary but
promising results.
