Mobile video applications have started to dominate the global mobile data traffic in recent years, and both opportunities and challenges have arisen when the emerging mobile cloud paradigm is introduced to support the resource-demanding video processing and networking services. This chapter offers in-depth discussions for content- and context-aware, adaptive, robust, secure, and real-time video applications in mobile cloud networks. The chapter describes and analyses the essential building blocks including the state-of-the-art technologies and standards on video encoding, adaptive streaming, mobile cloud computing, and resource management, and the associated security issues. The focus is context-aware adaptive streaming based on the latest video coding standard H.265 in the context of Internet-centric mobile cloud networking. Built upon selected building blocks underpinned by promising approaches and emerging standards, an integrated architecture is proposed towards achieving next-generation smart video streaming for mobile cloud users, with future research directions in this field identified.
