Overview: This paper proposes a Transcoding-enabled streaming media Caching system (TeC) along with a new set of caching strategies. The system is designed for efficient delivery of rich media web contents to heterogeneous network environments and client capabilities. The proxies perform transcoding as well as caching in the system. This design choice allows content adaptation to be performed at the edges of the networks. By serving the transcoded video directly from the proxy, the publisher improves the cache performance.
