Abstract: - Ubiquitous Multimedia Access has become a very common topic within the multimedia community during the last few years. Research centers and telecom providers address new, smart and efficient solutions for the ubiquitous access to multimedia data and in particular videos, from everywhere with mobile devices. But videos pose serious problems in terms of both amount of data transferred on the network and computational resources. In the mobile communication network, data-plan subscribers are tend to redistribute the video content to nonsubscribers at reasonable price. This kind of redistribution of video contents leads to a competition for the mobile service provider and it becomes very difficult to trace the route of content distribution from subscribers to the non-subscribers. Therefore the service provider needs to set a reasonable price for the data plan to prevent such unauthorized redistribution so that he can maximize his profit. In this paper, we do a survey on the optimal price distribution strategy for the service provider. For this we model the behavior between the subscribers and the secondary buyers as a no cooperative game and find the optimal price and quantity of video content for both groups of users.
