The importance of Video media for communications and entertainment has been a problem for many decades. Initially video was captured and transmitted in analog form. Video compression became an important area of research in the late 1980'S and 1990's and enabled a variety of applications including video storage on DVD'S and Video-CD's, video broadcast over digital cable, satellite and terrestrial(over-the-air) digital television (DTV), video conferencing and videophone over circuit-switched networks. The growth and popularity of the Internet in the mid-1990's motivated video communication over best-effort packet networks. The report identifies the gaps between the capabilities of currently deployed systems and the user requirements, and proposes further work cantered on the intranet (local Area Network) and World-Wide Web system to develop the teleresearch tools by using open source software. Considering the expensive budget allocation is required to develop the teleresearch tool, this project proposed a development of the teleresearch tools using open source software which freely available in the internet for University researchers usability. In addition, the open source software also gives flexibility to modify the source codes according to user's need with better security solution. This report shows, how the Teleresearch is been developed by using most of the open source tools which freely downloaded from internet. The manipulation freedom in changing the source code to gather with the interface modifications, gives us a maximum freedom to develop the teleresearch as per the organization needs. The main contribution of the Teleresearch is giving a great opportunist to all the researchers in Allianze College of Medical and Science (ACMS) to use this software as most important communication tool in order to conduct their research. However, there is a limitation in teleresearch model which inadequate with the bandwidth to retrieve streamed files depending to internet traffic. Internet congestion can cause playback delays, and even living on a particular road or street can influence the reception of streamed video connection. Consideration of the variation of video streaming quality and dynamic Optimization of internet traffic should be considerate as a future research in order to develop an advance quality of video streaming.
