Over recent years there has been a considerable shift, from quality of service (QoS) to quality of experience(QoE), when evaluating video delivery across networks. Hence, we first explore the need for this shift towards user-QoE in the video delivery ecosystem. Further, we investigate major QoE metrics researchers use in the evaluation of DASH users. We point out a huge problem with DASH beginning with its transport layer protocol. DASH utilizes Transmission control protocol (TCP) as the transport layer protocol. Thus, we give an overview of the mechanism of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and two mechanisms greatly impacting the streaming process: (1) TCP congestion mechanism and (2) TCP Fast Start. This leads us to investigate the impact of these TCP mechanisms on DASH players and consequently user-QoE.
