Video On Demand (VOD) System over Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a system that provides video services to mobile clients. The main problem in these systems is the high service delay where the mobile clients have to wait to watch their favorite movie. The importance of this paper is to find a solution on how to reduce the delay time in the system. This paper proposed a novel caching scheme called Neighborhood-Initial Playback Based Caching Scheme (NIPBCS) to overcome the service delay by sending the 1st segment of a movie to the new client by a Local Forwarder (LF).
