Abstract: Video streaming and mesh-based peer-to-peer file sharing are two of the most
bandwidth-demanding applications in the current Internet. In particular non-popular video
streaming is on the increase, and future networks are likely to be even more involved
in this type of application. Another expected ma jor defining trait of future network is
heterogeneity, not only with respect to access technologies, but also several other factors,
such as user mobility and terminal capability. This extended abstract delineates some
of the most pressing challenges to be faced by mesh-based collaborative video streaming
systems, with particular focus on maintaining adequate Quality of Experience (QoE).
