This paper analyzes YouTube video playback on a wireless device while walking along predetermined paths. Throughput traces are captured using a network sniffer and run through a video playback simulator with varying buffer sizes. A cost function is developed by weighing different attributes that affects viewing quality. Using simulator results, the initial buffer size that results in the lowest cost is determined.
