MPEG-4 and H.263 encoded video is expected to account for a large portion of the traffic in future wireline and wireless networks. However, due to a lack of sufficiently long frame size traces of MPEG-4 and H.263 encoded videos, most network performance evaluations currently use MPEG-1 encodings. In this article we present and study a publicly available library of frame size traces of long MPEG-4 and H.263 encoded videos, which we have generated at Technical University Berlin. The frame size traces have been generated from MPEG-4 and H.263 encodings of over 10 video sequences 60 minutes long each. We conduct a thorough statistical analysis of the traces.
