As video consumes a significant percentage of the available network bandwidth, understanding video bandwidth requirements will translate into better network control schemes. In this study, several commercially available video streams are statistically analyzed and several modeling approaches are developed. The segmentation techniques are found to be rewarding. However, the improvements due to complexity of the polynomial models are insignificant.
