In this era of social media, real time video multicast over Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) is subject of active research and new products are in use as a result of these research advancements. The authors have earlier proposed a simple and novel approach for multicasting in MANETs that is particularly suited for multicasting live video/audio streams, which gives efficient solution to this problem. The proposed solution is lightweight, scalable and is general that it can be made to work with any underlying unicast routing protocol. Experimental evaluation of scalability and reliability aspects of their solution is presented in this paper.
