In this paper, a distributed multimedia application framework is proposed. The framework is based on Model-View-Controller of Smalltalk-80. Multimedia applications are developing as a popular. However, development of highly interactive multimedia applications for today’s high-powered computer is complex and time consuming. An application framework is typically composed of mixture of abstract and concrete classes along with a model of interaction and control flow among the classes. The application framework has “hooks” to allow an application programmer to plug in objects that represent the functionality unique to this application. The distributed processing of multimedia information enables advanced application areas like video conferencing, video on demand and improves the performance in other areas. Thus, it is necessary that an application framework be built for distributed multimedia.
