Abstract—In recent years, mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) have attracted a lot of work. One of the hottest research topics for MANETs is the routing problem that concentrates mainly on determining a good enough route from a source to a destination. Today, this means that the derived route must satisfy certain constraints or quality of service (QoS) guarantees required by multimedia applications. Therefore, the provision of QoS assurances is needed for any MANET routing protocol. Routes in MANETs are often not reliable and stable while most of multimedia applications require time-sensitive data transmission services. Thus, we propose a high-performance routing protocol to meet the QoS requirements of multimedia applications operating over MANETs. This QoS routing protocol utilizes the remaining bandwidth and transmission delay as the routing metrics for route selection. Our proposal is more flexible than existing solutions as it relies on a two-mode algorithm to identify the best-effort route according to the changes in the requirements of multimedia applications.
