Abstract

The mobile industry is growing every day and the mobile phone became in the past few years the most personal device ever. Often, it is the first interface someone looks at in the morning (with the alarm clock) and the last one in the evening (either for the alarm clock or just check the last messages). The combination of this personal aspect and its growing power opens new commercial perspectives for the future. It is easy now
to imagine watching movies in the train via streaming or side loading using those next generation mobile devices. This experience can even be dramatically improved by using adaptive streaming, a technology that allows for dynamic selection and adaptation of video quality during playback, based on the available bandwidth, thus providing an overall better end-user experience. However, delivering digital content to mobile devices raises the copyright and intellectual property issues. Therefore, protected delivery mechanisms are required, that often rely on a specific DRM (Digital Rights Management) scheme. In this thesis, we will address design and implementation of a DRM agent on an open platform in order to support protected media when using adaptive streaming.
