New media distribution system that downloads decoder software as well as coded data is studied. Server need not take care of the type of the client operation system as long as client-independent decoder software such as JAVA is used. CORBA can also be used to define its interface between server and client being independent from the hardware specification. Seamless and minimum delay playback is the main target of this study.
