Peer-to-peer based systems have been widely proposed to provide the Video-on-Demand (VoD) service on the Internet in recent years.With the development of mobile networks, we proposed a suitable VoD system for mobile networks, in which peers are classified into groups and the backbone networks are established so that peers in the same group can share and transmit the streaming videos through the backbone networks. Further, mobile nodes that are not located at the backbone networks can receive the streaming videos through the Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). Through our path selection mechanism, peers can route faster and the system will be load-balancing. By considering the influence of the locality to mobile nodes, we delimit the new range of WMNs. In addition, according to the Airtime metric proposed in IEEE 802.11s, the Airtime cost of every mesh loop is calculated and the optimal path thus can be figured out.
