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