The goal of the thesis is to design streaming media from flash by writing driver in user space and loaded in kernel space. The main objective is to make low power consumption mechanism useful for media streaming. In Present mechanism , a media is streaming from hard-disk in that the movement of mechanical part is continue so that’s why more power consumption occurs, so instead of present mechanism the concurrent mechanism will implement in that the media is streaming from flash so that’s why the mechanical part’s movement is reduce and power Saving occurs which ultimately results in power optimization. The project involves writing a character driver in blocking and non-blocking mode using Ioctl system call so that instead of using address space of secondary storage devices like hard disk, the new mechanism will use the address space of ram, which results in fast data caching so without any delay the media will be play which finally saves lot of time as well as power. The process overall includes creating multithreads, making open system call in blocking or non-blocking mode which utilizes user daemon services to call, wait(blocking or non-blocking mode) and acknowledge the process.
