As the emerging multimedia on the latest social multimedia network, high dimensional video (HDV) data distribution is one of the most challenging problems in social multimedia applications. In the paper, we provide a state-of-the-art analysis on the streaming and interactive technologies for the two most popular representations of HDV, video plus depth map and multi-view video since both of them can enable the view-point interaction and behavior analysis in social media applications. Additionally, view-point switching techniques in HDV streaming with emphasis on interactive functionality are discussed, including SP-frame, Wyner-ziv frame and view switchable stream generation. Moreover, the overall performance of key tools focusing on HDV streaming is evaluated and potential improvements are discussed.
