Multimedia is one of the most important component in the mobile devices. The main goal of this project is to add the new "streaming standard" into Android multimedia framework allowing adaptation using also full-HD sequences.
Natively Android framework is already able to support video streaming using Apple HLS standard. The idea is to extend the handler adding all the logic to manage playlists not only in m3u8 format but also as MPD file (Media Presentation Description).
Also the work enrich the multimedia framework of a new component to add a basic set of adaptation heuristics acts to adapt dynamically the streaming bit-rate in use accordingly to some basic platform information like screen resolution and average system throughput.
