A rate splitting algorithm is presented for a multiple video transmission system to transfer the aggregation (or statical multiplexing) of multiple video streams to multiple clients so that each client can receive the requested video stream with the reliable fidelity. Computer simulations for transmission of a set of 128 MPEG compressed video streams show that the proposed algorithm alleviates the variability of the aggregate video transmission comparing with a scheme to smooth individually each of videos using the traditional online smoothing algorithm. Besides, the proposed is 2 time faster than the traditional one.
