Live multimedia streaming is one of the greatest promises of a wireless network operator. In recent years, there has been an upsurge of interest in the feedback-oriented multimedia streaming in the wireless domain, in both industry and academia. However, the lack of an acceptable and guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) in the wireless domain results in the media packets experiencing dynamic variations in bandwidth, delays and loss rate as they traverse from the sender to the receiver. Moreover, the plethora of wireless devices in the market ranging from i-phone and PDA to laptop, HDTV etc. makes it difficult to provide optimum video quality of the same multimedia content to all the devices simultaneously.
