In this article we provide a model for the dynamic behavior of a single video streaming chain, by formulating a theorem describing the stable behavior. This stable behavior is characterized in terms of the elementary actions of the components in the chain, from which standard performance measures (such as activation time, response time, number of context switches and resource utilization) follow. From this we derive corollaries that give guidelines for the design of the chain, which target improving the end-to-end response time of the chain and the optimization of resources by minimizing context-switching overhead and buffer sizes.
