Many ad hoc network protocols (e.g., routing, service discovery, etc.) use flooding as the basic mechanism to propagate control messages. In flooding, a node transmits a message to all of its neighbors. The neighbors in turn transmit to their neighbors and so on until the message has been propagated to the entire network. In this paper we proposed an efficient way of flooding for multimedia content delivery. In this approach we used two best techniques for making flooding more efficient and fast. First is: passive clustering and second is RRDBFSF (Radius Restrained Distributed Breadth First Search Flooding).

Keywords: Clustering in Ad hoc network, Passive clustering, RRDBFSF algorithm.
