Generic, scalable multimedia streaming and delivery with example application for H.264/AVC
The ever increasing diversity of multimedia technology presents a growing challenge to interoperability in as new content formats are developed. The Bitstream Binding Language (BBL) addresses this problem by providing a format-independent language to describe how multimedia content is to be delivered. This paper proposes extensions to BBL that enable a generic, scalable streaming server architecture. In this architecture, new content formats are supported by providing a simple file with instructions as to how the software may be streamed. This approach removes any need to modify existing software to provide such support.
