The authors describe a video-on-demand system that uses personal computers with LANs, making it possible to offer video services with low cost and a wide range of applications. This design approach brings down the cost and may find a wider scope of application in the future. Our research focuses on the underlying software architecture for video library services. We assume the existence of an adequate operating system (OS), network and disk support. We survey related VOD research, introduce services supporting video library, and cover the system architecture and design. We discuss the architecture of our video library server and clients; describe our system implementation, and examine future directions
