This paper presents novel adaptive frame discard algorithms for TCP-based video streaming over IP networks. The proposed algorithms, termed Priority Early Frame Discard (PEFD) algorithms, reduce the long playback delay for heterogeneous clients having insufficient network bandwidth and/or decoding speed. They discard frames at the server side in accordance with the network bandwidth and computational capabilities associated with the clients. The algorithms have low computational complexity, and can be easily implemented in digital surveillance systems such as IP cameras with only limited computational capacity for realtime video broadcast.
