In recent years, cloud services have been introduced to the multimedia streaming applications. The advantage of cloud-based streaming service is that users can access multimedia contents from any device that is connected to the Internet. However, it is not easy to guarantee seamless streaming when the display device is switched. To switch streaming service being provided from one device to another seamlessly, adaptive rate control scheme is required by considering the network and device capabilities. However, existing stream systems do not consider both the characteristics of display devices and network status for rate control. This paper proposes an adaptive rate control scheme to improve the performance of cross-device handover in cloud-based streaming service.
