Survey indicates a rise of 81% in mobile data usage in the year 2013. A fair share of this total data demand can be attributed to video streaming. The encoding structure of videos, introduces nuances that can be utilized to ensure a fair and optimal means of streaming the video data. This dissertation proposes a novel user and packet scheduling algorithm that guarantees a fair allocation of resources.
