Video streaming in Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a real challenge due to frequent changes in network topology, and sensitiveness of radio links. Recent approaches make use of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) technologies to combat these challenges because the technologies have been already found to be effective for content delivery on the Internet. However, as the Internet and MANET operate differently, the P2P technologies used in Internet need modifications before employing to MANET. In this chapter, the authors discuss the recent P2P approaches, the adaptations to be made, and the major challenges to be faced while using P2P approaches in MANETs.
