Recent advancement in the network technology and infrastructure support video streaming over multiple paths. Realizing high quality video streaming over Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANET) is a very challenging task. This paper proposes an Application Layer Based Capability Aware protocol for single server multi user live streaming application. In wireless network each device has different capability in terms of data-storage, mobility, forwarding data, availability etc., and proposed protocol aims to realize these capabilities and to distribute video chunks in multiple paths by segmenting the stream based on its capacity. This is achieved with the help of Fenwick Tree – a data structure which is integrated in the Application Layer. The system is implemented and tested under various scenarios. The results show there is a considerable increase in throughput and decrease in total transfer time. © Research India Publications
