Currently there are a wide variety of devices with different screen resolutions, color support, processing power, and network connectivity, capable of receiving streaming video from the Internet. In order to serve different multimedia content to all these devices, middleware proxy servers which transcode content to fit different types of devices are becoming popular. In this paper, we present result of several tests conducted with different combination of video encoding parameters and show
