Abstract

Within the last years, the Web has developed into a content platform featuring rich multimedia content, dynamic establishments of communities and a continuously increasing importance of interaction and communication. This trend reveals new challenges when considering the increasing mobility of users implied by the usage of portable devices such as PDAs and Multimedia Players.

Within this paper, we present an application for managing, extending and sharing multimedia content within user communities. Here, special emphasis is put on the abstraction from the underlying network topology. Thus, the way specific functionality of the application is realized is dynamically decided with regard to user's preferences and the current network topology.
