We survey twenty years of research literature on video frame size forecasting. We organize the discussion of the literature using model type and model parameters as a taxonomy. We discuss how to use video frame size forecasts to forecast video bandwidth requirements. We provide extensive comparisons of forecast accuracy among the various mechanisms using data extracted from the literature and a set of common experiments we conducted. Lastly, we summarize our findings with respect to forecast accuracy and we identify open areas for research.
