    a buffer coupled to receive the media stream, the buffer coupled to the processor for communicating an amount of free space remaining in the buffer, wherein the processor constructs the media stream by encoding the audio/video signal using a bit rate that is dynamically adjusted based on the amount of free space remaining in the buffer; and

    a network interface configured to transmit the media stream stored in the buffer to a client over a network.
