Recently, multimedia becomes increasingly popular for the users of ad hoc networks. To support multimedia and real-time application the study of QoS issues in MANETs is essential. MANETs can provide efficiently multimedia users with the required mobility. Development in multimedia and ad hoc networking has spurred rapidly growing research interested in multimedia delivery over ad hoc networks. Designing ad hoc networks which support multimedia applications is considered as a hard task. In this article, we present a labor that demonstrate that ad hoc networks support video streaming and present the analysis done by OPNET environment. We will talk in this article about routing protocols in ad hoc networks used in multimedia and real time application and also review the QoS. Using simulation we conclude with the comparative analysis of ad hoc networks routing protocols (AODV, DSR, OLSR, TORA, and GRP) for multimedia streaming. The result of simulations already done demonstrate that in ad hoc networks we have good quality of video streaming.
