Applications and multimedia players based on Video-streaming became common as soon as more bandwidth came to be available, courtesy 3G and 4G. Alumnus played a significant role in this revolution, building software for video calling and entertainment.
We contributed to and used several Open Source streaming and encoding / decoding software and multimedia players including Live555.com, MPlayer, ffmpeg and GStreamer. We also built multi-party video calling software.
Some other interesting contributions included adding 3GPP extensions, selectively requesting retransmission of video frames during a jittery session and automatically adjusting the video quality as per the network bandwidth.
