Video Traces for Network Performance Evaluation

Trace Website ]→[ Video Traces]

We provide a large publicly available library of traces of encoded (compressed) video. The traces have been generated from encodings of several videos of typically 60 minutes length each. We provide traces for videos encoded with MPEG-4 Part 2, H.261, H.263, H.264/AVC, and H.264/SVC. Please refer to the technical reports for details on the video encoding procedure as well as the formatting of the available trace files and trace statistics.
