In order to streamline video content distribution on a myriad of platforms over heterogeneous networks, HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) is being increasingly adopted. In this paper we pilot a bio-inspired HAS optimisation design with the aim of maximising the overall user experience of a video playback session. Evaluations conducted within a real-world Internet environment, using quality indicators such as convergence time, start-up delay, average video rate, stability, and fairness, demonstrate the benefits of our design.
