In this paper, we investigate how Multiple Description Coding (MDC) can improve the user's satisfaction for a group of heterogeneous destinations for video multicast over wireless ad hoc networks. Specifically, we explore the independent-description property of MDC with multiple paths to improve the user's satisfaction. In our approach, the assignment of multiple description (MD) video is randomly done by a multicast source node. Based on the assignment of MD video, the multicast source constructs multiple multicast trees accordingly. Simulation results demonstrate that our approach can achieve higher user's satisfaction regardless of the multicast group size.
