Video download using cloud services is one of the most popular applications in the field of mobile cloud computing. Reducing the energy consumption of the mobile devices is a major challenge in sustaining multimedia applications. In this paper, an adaptive framework is provided for group of users with common interest to collaboratively download a video file from the cloud and share it. In collaborative file download each node downloads only a segment of video file. These downloaded segments are reassembled and merged into a complete file and then it is shared to all users of the ad hoc group.
