Due to the recent developments in the wireless mesh and ad-hoc networks, multi-hop cognitive radio networks (MCRNs) have attained the significant attention towards providing the reliable multimedia communications. However, in reliable multimedia communications each multimedia application observed a very stringent quality-of-service (QoS) requirements. Moreover, in MCRNs, channel allocated to the multimedia secondary users (MSUs) can be re-occupied by the primary users (PUs) at any time which causes the end-to-end-path discontinuity that severely affect the performance of the MCRNs. Therefore, under the dynamic channel availability, selecting an end-to-end path that is not only stable but also fulfills the QoS requirements of the real time and multimedia (RM) applications is a challenging task and still an open research problem. Hence, in this paper, we propose a cross-layer routing scheme that supports adaptive bit-rate multimedia (ABM) transmissions over MCRNs. Moreover, our path selection is based on the QoSaware end-to-end path delay, and PU-activity aware endto-end path stability metrices. Furthermore, to avoid the PU interference, continuity in transmission, efficient channel utilization, and supporting error resilience over time varying wireless channels our selected end-to-end path is periodically updated. Simulation study shows that the proposed scheme is more robust and suitable for supporting ABM over MCRNs.
