A novel dynamic bandwidth allocation algorithm for archived video delivery is presented in this paper. It adopts the generalized Brieman, Friedman, Olshen, and Stone (BFOS) algorithm for optimizing the rate-distortion performance for image delivery. Without feedback from clients, the algorithm is able to find the convex hull in the rate-distortion plane with low computational complexity. It is therefore well-suited for CDN-based media streaming applications with high client variations.
