My ADC Submission: Five, a media distribution technique

I have created a system by which your music can be accessed anytime on the go using your cell phone's wireless data connection. Simply install the server software onto your home PC and configure the phone to connect to it. Initially, the meta database will be downloaded and then from there only changes will be synced to the phone. The media itself is retrieved on demand and cached to the storage card. In my real-world tests with a remote server and simulating GPRS or EDGE data throughput has been very promising, requiring only 3 - 8 seconds of buffer time before most content can be played.

For more screenshots and info, see http://android-five.googlecode.com. The system, though currently closed, will be opened under the terms of the GPL after the first round challenge winners are announced, regardless of outcome.

I will also be posting a video this week, showing my system in action. Stay tuned.
