This article focuses on the analysis of the two most widespread protocols of ad hoc network routing: Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), both of them popular, scalable, and reactive routing protocols. It analyzes and compares their performance in H. 264/SVC video transmission using NS2 simulation and integration with myEvalSVC, analyzing the provision of Quality of Service (QoS) metrics of Delay End to End and Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR), maintaining the network size unchanged but varying the speed of each node. We will observe the behavior of these routing protocols in two types of topology: Dense and Sparse. It seems that the topology significantly influence the provision of QoS in the transmission of H. 264/SVC video on a system with a medium access control scheme by using the Distributed Coordination Function (DCF).
