One of the fundamental challenges faced in deploying multimedia systems is delivering smooth and uninterrupted audio-visual information anywhere and anytime. In such systems, multimedia content is compressed within a certain format, this requires format conversion for various devices. Thus, a transcoding mechanism is required to make the content adaptive for various devices in the network. Video transcoding converts one digitally encoded format into another, this involves translating any file format containing video and audio at the same time. This is an essential feature for devices that do not support a specific format of media or have limited storage that requires a reduced file size. Through this paper, we provide a novel way of transcoding the block-based video coding schemes using cloud architecture by establishing a video pipelining architecture. The solution discussed in this paper would enable the end users to extract videos in any format and resolution seamlessly, combined with the scalability, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of the cloud. The proposed idea would be lucrative for all the video streaming applications that are currently relying on their legacy infrastructure for video transcoding.
