Abstract -
Multimedia cloud streaming is the latest trend to meet up with the intensive bandwidth requirements needed by conventional multimedia streaming. Multimedia cloud streaming involves a distributed environment. In such environments, resource allocation plays a major role in the efficiency of streaming to the end users. Bandwidth is a limited resource. The streaming services involve both desktop users and users on mobile devices. We propose a novel allocation algorithm for bandwidth to be shared by both fixed and mobile users in an optimal manner. Also we propose an additional algorithm for fair pricing scheme. We have displayed the results of the simulation of our proposed algorithms.
