Streaming video has recently surpassed peer-to-peer networks in terms of network capacity hunger. Reports estimate a share of 40% of peak network capacity dedicated to entertainment, mostly streaming video. A large share of this traffic originates from web based services. YouTube alone takes up to 8% of the prime time internet traffic. So multimedia on the web is currently a big issue. While transmission currently works in a best effort system, multimedia information systems on the web are far from being perfect. Retrieval, annotation, validated and useful metadata, reliable and trusted services, and user interaction and context-based adaptation are still under discussion and allow improvement. Currently, the Web itself faces dramatic changes, looking for example at the spread of social networks, Linked Data or the impact of HTML5 or WebM. These activities also have a deep effect on multimedia data and content provider. This special issue shall collect high quality papers from applied and basic research as well as applications for multimedia on the web.

Special Issue Description
-------------------------
Streaming video has recently surpassed peer-to-peer networks in terms of network capacity hunger.
Reports estimate a share of 40% of peak network capacity dedicated to entertainment, mostly
streaming video. A large share of this traffic originates from web based services. YouTube alone
takes up to 8% of the prime time internet traffic. So multimedia on the web is currently a big
issue. While transmission currently works in a best effort system, multimedia information systems
on the web are far from being perfect. Retrieval, annotation, validated and useful metadata,
reliable and trusted services, and user interaction and context-based adaptation are still under
discussion and allow improvement. Currently, the Web itself faces dramatic changes, looking for
example at the spread of social networks, Linked Data or the impact of HTML5 or WebM. These
activities also have a deep effect on multimedia data and content provider. This special issue
shall collect high quality papers from applied and basic research as well as applications for
multimedia on the web.
