Advances in broadband technology are generating an increasing demand for video-on-demand (VOD) applications. In this paper, an optimal video placement scheme is proposed for a batching VOD system with multiple servers. Given a specified requirement of the blocking probability, an optimal batching interval is derived and the corresponding file placement is obtained by hybrid genetic algorithm. It is demonstrated that the specified requirement on blocking probability is satisfied, while both batching interval and server capacity usage are minimized simultaneously.
