We earlier proposed a flexible multimedia system (FMS) that is able to guarantee end-to-end QoS according to priority of parameters and consensus policy. On interconnected computer networks, we can communicate with each other using real-time media such as audio and video by distributed multimedia system that can integrate various realtime and discrete media data. The multimedia system is required to realize end-to-end quality of service (QoS) guarantee functions. When users communicate with each other on interconnected different bandwidth networks, if the system can use translator or mixer functions that are defined by RTP it will be able to guarantee more flexible QoS. In addition, the system is able to organize various multimedia services dynamically. The FMS is a mobile agent based system, therefore the system will be able to organize a translator or mixer dynamically. In this paper we discuss QoS guarantee functions using mobile agent and re-design our prototype system to use mobile transcoding functions for flexible multimedia communication.
