We propose a distributed node selection (DNS) scheme that guarantees quality of service (QoS) of the scalable video broadcasting system over wireless channels. The proposed DNS scheme chooses the destination node based on the SVC layer information, and it selects the best relay from a set of competing candidate nodes by considering two factors: 1) wireless channel conditions between destination and relay candidates and 2) scalable video's layer information. In simulations, the performance of the proposed scheme in terms of quality gains, complexity (overhead) and applicability was examined.
