In this paper, the authors aim at maximizing quality playback of received video streaming perceived by users in Video on-Demand systems (VoDs) over Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). To do so, they exploit the benefits of both Multi-Source Multi-Path (MSMP) delivery scheme and broadcast nature of wireless media in WMNs. In this way, a new user can efficiently receive the descriptions of a video streaming from different peers (i.e., the available users who have cached the video) via the best parallel selected paths between each peer-user pair.
