Trickle: Rate Limiting YouTube Video Streaming
This page demonstrates Trickle in action using two pre-recorded YouTube videos. One using Ustreamer's default streaming algorithm, one using Trickle.
The two videos start downloading similarly during the initial bursting phase.
After entering the throttling phase, it is visible that ustreamer download bar jumps at 64kB chunks while Trickle smoothes the transmission of the video.
By design, both videos’ sending rate is equal and they finish downloading at the same time.
