Interactive video streaming applications are becoming more popular also in the Internet environment and studies showed that interactive operations are well supported if the end-to-end delay, experienced by the application traffic, is kept lower than a pre-defined, and application dependent, threshold. In this paper we propose a new approach that acts on the video QoS in order to keep the end-to-end delay within the acceptable threshold. Our mechanism has been evaluated through several simulations and results obtained show that it is well suited for supporting interactive video streaming applications over the Internet.
