In this paper, we will address the problem of designing an interactive video server employing multiprocessors. An interactive video server needs to provide quick response to user's requests. When the video stream is a sequence of short video clips and if the order in which these clips are played out is determined by the user, the video clips need to be started up fairly quickly to give an impression of seamless or near-seamless delivery. We will address this problem of providing quick turnaround response to user's requests while guaranteeing smooth play out of already scheduled streams.
