Multimedia applications are resource-intensive applications and processing them using the mobile devices is a challenging task because of the limited resources of the mobile devices. To solve this issue, in this work, a robust architecture has been proposed where different multimedia applications are processed using mobile cloud computing (MCC) which is also based on multi-cloud environment, in order to run the applications in an efficient manner. Also, we have stated the future roadmap which aims at coming up with a scalable architecture which will provide near real-time experience of multimedia applications to the user community.
