In this paper, the authors address the problem of selecting and composing video transcoding services in a distributed cloud environment. One of the challenging issues for video transcoding service composition is how to find the best transcoding path to route the data flow through while satisfying the viewer requirements and specifications. In a cloud environment, video transcoding service providers provide different video transcoding services that have similar functionality (i.e., format conversion), but with different Quality of Services (QoSs) specifications.
