In the recent Broadcasts of IPL Matches on YouTube (Indian Premier League), I noticed that the Video Quality of the live stream degrades and Up-scales according to the bandwidth available.

This is a good way to prevent block-ups in live-streaming and still be able to deliver the broadcast.

Question: What kind of codec and streaming server are required for this?

The Microsoft Media Ecosystem can do this automatically.

Take a look at this page, it lists information for the codec, server parts, client parts and more.

If you need any help or further information on this, let me know and I can dig up links to specific questions.
