MANET does not have any fixed infrastructure, so the mobile nodes are free to move within a network which results in dynamic change of network topology. The Real-time video transport has rigid bandwidth, delay, and a loss requirement to support this application in Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks is a challenge. MANET consists of mobile nodes that cause frequent link failures. This link failure causes two main problems. First, when a route break occurs, all packets that have already transmitted on that route are dropped which degrades the video quality and it decreases the average packet delivery ratio (PDR). Second, the transmission of data traffic is halted for the time till a new route is discovered and it increasing the average end-to-end delay. For that we have proposed Node-Disjoint Multipath Routing Based on DSR Protocol with Multiple Description Coding Technique (MDC). Node-Disjoint Path means there is no common node between two paths and MDC encode a media source into two or more sub-bit streams. The sub-streams, also called descriptions. The experiment has been done using NS2 simulator with Evalvid for evaluating the video quality. Our proposed scheme will improve Packet Delivery Ratio, Throughput and Decreased Average End-to-End Delay.
