The Berkeley Continuous Media Toolkit provides low-level, modular tools for developing distributed continuous media (CM) applications. The programming interface to the toolkit requires application developers to create and manage objects required to play back audio and video. These objects are distributed to different processes possibly on different hosts. This paper presents an application programming interface (API) that frees the application writer from the details of managing the underlying CM objects. It also provides an easily configurable framework in which CM object developers can place their objects. A simple video editing application is shown to demonstrate the benefits of using the API and framework.
