The performance of multimedia stream delivery is influenced by encoding scheme, streaming solution and network conditions. This paper studies the performance of multimedia streaming when using the Quality-Oriented Adaptive Scheme (QOAS) over an IEEE 802.11b Wireless LAN and compares it to that achieved when using other solutions that do not consider end-user quality in their delivery process such as TFRC, LDA+, and non-adaptive schemes. The performance is assessed in terms of average end-user perceived quality, number of concurrent streaming sessions, loss rate, delay, jitter and total throughput when streaming MPEG-4 encoded content. Simulation results show that the QOAS out-performs these other streaming solutions in all aspects of network delivery. QOAS can support a greater number of concurrent streaming sessions at a higher average quality. In addition, for the same number of clients QOAS achieved a higher average end-user quality, as well as better network delivery streaming performance parameters
