The increasing capability of mobile handsets, advancing multimedia processing, improving codec technology (e.g., mp3, JPEG, MPEG-4 SP, H.264), and bigger communication pipes have the potential for providing increasing volumes of multimedia data to mobile users. The problem of intelligently managing multimedia content is becoming increasingly prevalent in this space. For example, applications that archive and retrieve personal content as well as those that search and stream commercial content over wired and wireless channels need to provide a compelling user experience while transparently and efficiently handling the vast amounts of underlying data. This work provides a user-intuitive, standards-based approach for managing multimedia content on mobile handsets.
