Abstract: 
The 3rd generation partnership project (3GPP) has defined the protocols and codecs for implementing media streaming services over packet-switched 3G mobile networks. The specification is based on IETF RFCs on audio/video transport. It also adds new features to achieve better adaptation to the mobile network environment. In this paper, we propose an algorithm for handover detection and fast buffer refill that is based on the existing feedback and signaling mechanisms. The proposed algorithm refills the receiver buffer at a faster pace during a limited time frame after a hard handover is detected in order to achieve higher video quality.
