Abstract

In this article we propose a layered architecture that makes possible the visualization of large videos, and even other multimedia documents, in memory/processing limited devices. Storage of videos is performed at the server side, and the client plays the video without worrying about storage space in the device. Data available in the server is divided into small pieces of readable data for mobile devices, generally JPEG files. For example, when the client requests videos from the server, the videos are sent as JPEG files and shown at an ideal rate for users. The video frames are sent through a wireless connection.
