The present work shows a system for compressing and streaming of live videos over networks with low bandwidths (radio mobile networks), with the objective to design an effective solution for mobile video access. We present a mobile ready-to-use streaming system, that encodes video using h264 codec (offering good quality and frame rate at very low bit-rates) and streams it over the network using UDP protocol. A dynamic frame rate control has been implemented in order to obtain the best trade off between playback fluency and latency.
