The global share of video in Internet traffic is expected to rise from 75% in 2017 to 82% in 2022. Being the killer application of the Internet, video streaming attracts extensive research. In this presentation, I discuss video-streaming research across the entire end-to-end pipeline composed by three stages of ingestion, processing, and distribution. After describing the main metrics and general methodologies used in all stages, I zoom in on prominent solutions for specific problems: LiveSRVC in the ingestion stage of live video streaming and BBA, MPC, and Pensieve as adaptive bitrate (ABR) algorithms in the distribution stage. Finally, I present current trends and promising future directions in video-streaming research.
