Multi-Path Video Streaming with Redundant Frames over a MANET

By Nadia N. Qadri, M. Altaf, Martin Fleury and Mohammed Ghanbari


It has become feasible to stream video across a mobile network ad hoc network (MANET). This paper proposes using the H.264 codec’s ‘redundant frames ’ video delivery over multi-paths and compares their performance to Video Redundancy Coding, another multi-path technique. The paper reports that ‘redundant frames ’ result in as much as 10 dB improvement in delivered video quality. An interesting secondary result that emerged from experiments was that for all performance indicators Location-Aided Routing (LAR) provides superior performance to the wellknown AODV routing protocol
