Abstract

In this paper we present a mobile application for the seamless and effective provision of networked multimedia content search and delivery services to users on the move. The VICTORY project had as an outcome a framework enabling users to search and retrieve multimedia objects over a distributed Peer to Peer - based network. Building upon the VICTORY framework, a mobile user agent was developed, which by the use of appropriate Web Services has the ability to connect to different P2P communities in order to search for and retrieve multimedia content. The content delivered follows the notion of the “MultiPedia” object, defined for the purpose of seamless and effective content search and delivery within the VICTORY Framework.
