With the rising penetration of smartphones in the consumer market, mobile multimedia content is becoming the dominant form of information that people produce and consume on a daily basis. In this paper we present a wireless multi-hop video streaming application for mobile phones with the Android operating system. This application allows to share live information captured by mobile phone sensors (e.g., camera, microphone) with persons that might be multiple wireless hops away. The video streaming is based on peer-to-peer communication between mobile phones, i.e. without the use of video processing servers or network infrastructure. We show the feasibility of such peer-to-peer video streaming application for Android phones in a variety of experiments that evaluate various video streaming scenarios, including various video codecs and various generations of Android phones.
