As computer and network technology advance, multimedia data can be transferred in real time on the internet. The increasing user demands for various multimedia data make VoD (Video on Demand) services to be developed. Video on Demand (VoD) services are being used in lots of fields such as entertainment, distant learning, home shopping and interactive news. Video-on-Demand (VoD) has been gaining increasing popularity in recent years. The computational problems arising in such systems are very large and require appropriate mechanisms for distributing the data among the processors.
