Streaming consists in distributing media to large audiences over a computer network. Providing a streaming service for wireless mobile nodes presents many challenges. A peer-to-peer (P2P) solution has the big advantage of seamlessly scaling to arbitrary population sizes, as every node that receives the video, while consuming resources, can at the same time offer its own upload bandwidth to serve other nodes. In this paper we present the design and implementation of NeuroCast: an unstructured

Thus, NeuroCast becomes suitable for wireless scenarios due to its capability to adapt to changing network conditions.
