Abstract: In this paper, we propose a multimedia data transmission method, Multitrack, that achieves high-speed and efficient data transmission between multiple mobile hosts and the internet. Users of the hosts in a cluster can see a high quality streaming video by sharing the received multimedia data cooperatively with the other hosts. In Multitrack, it is important to disperse traffic according to the quality of multiple links in order to offer a stable multimedia data transmission. We also propose an effective traffic dispersion method for this environment, and evaluate this method and other basic methods by simulations.
