A progress report of implementing a distributed MPEG Video system with feedback control and quality of service (QoS) was presented. The implementation details on Video servers and Middleware of Video Client were discussed. Master server, video server and video client constituted the system. The operation of the entire video system was controlled by the master server. Master server accepted requests from the clients, allocated video servers to serve the requests and monitored the overall system status. Video data was sent to the client by video servers under the control of master server. Video clients received the video data from the video server and displayed the video on screen.
