Music Filled Flask : Real Time Distributed Transcoding
MetadataShow full item record
It is becoming more common to stream videos to cell phones and other devices that rely on cellular data connections. One reason people stream videos to their cellular devices is to listen to music that is on YouTube. This uses an unnecessarily large amount of mobile bandwidth, as the user only wants the audio but receives the video as well. To minimize the cost of streaming videos to mobile devices for the purpose of listening to music, the purpose of this study was to develop a web service that converts a user-created playlist of YouTube videos into an audio stream.
