Establishing peer-to-peer (P2P) live streaming for mobile ad hoc network (MANET) requires an efficient scheme to deliver the real-time data in the infrastructure-less disaster environment. However, P2P membership management is difficult in the dynamic mobility and resource limited MANET. In this paper, we present a cross-layer design for P2P-MANET which integrates P2P DHT-based routing protocol and IPv6 routing protocol. Therefore, the proposed scheme can manage and recover the P2P overlay as well as selecting efficient routing path to multicast video streaming. The simulation results demonstrate that the proposed scheme performs relatively better than the layered approach or the off-the-shelf design in terms of the playback continuity and signaling overhead.
