Video streaming capabilities over Vehicular Ad Hoc NETworks (VANETs) are crucial to the development of interesting and valuable services. However, VANETs are a challenging environment to this kind of communication due to the dispersion and movement of vehicles. In this paper, the authors present a feasible solution to this problem. The VIdeo Reactive Tracking-based UnicaSt protocol (VIRTUS) is a receiving-based solution that uses vehicles' current and future location for a selection policy of relaying nodes. It fulfills video streaming requirements without incurring into an excessive number of transmissions. Besides that, it outperforms other baseline solutions.
