Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are becoming more essential to wireless communications due to growing popularity of mobile devices. Many researchers have committed effort to enhance the Multimedia (video) transmission over MANETs. Various algorithms and mechanisms concerning the optimization of multimedia transmission have been presented. In this work we evaluate the effect of using multiple interfaces and multiple channels per node in the performance of already existing MANET routing protocols during video transmission. The evaluation shows that all routing protocols benefit from using multiple interfaces and multiple channels per node, and the video transmission over MANETs is improved.
