A grid computing system is designed for solving complicated scientific and commercial problems effectively, whereas mobile computing is a traditional distributed system having computing capability with mobility and adopting wireless communications. Media and entertainment fields can take advantage from both paradigms by applying its usage in gaming applications and multimedia data management. Multimedia data has to be stored and retrieved in an efficient and effective manner to put it in use. In this paper, the authors proposed an application layer protocol for delivery of multimedia data in wireless girds i.e. MultiMedia Grid Protocol (MMGP).
