The dynamic and shared nature of wireless medium imposes an adverse barrier to supporting QoS for video streaming applications in wireless networks. This paper investigates a case study of video streaming in a wireless mesh network to obtain important observations on the factors which impact video quality in multihop wireless mesh networks. Based on the analysis of the case study, the authors propose the solutions for enhancing video streaming experience in wireless mesh networks from a cross-layer perspective which leverage the information across network (Routing) layer and link (MAC) layer.
