Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design and implementation of a file server for variable bit rate continuous media. Most continuous media file servers have been designed for constant bit rate streams. We address the problem of building a server where each stream may have a different bit rate and, more importantly, where the bit rate within a single stream may vary considerably. Such servers will become increasingly more important because of Variable Bit Rate compression standards such as is possible with MPEG-2.
