Today, a steadily increasing number of users not just passively consumes Internet content, but also creates and publishes content. Users publish text, photos and videos. With the availability of 5G high-speed, low-latency mobile broadband networks, also real-time video streaming will be possible. We believe this will become a very popular application in the coming years. But the more popular a service is, the higher the need for resilience. In this paper, we introduce our work-in-progress live video streaming platform for future mobile edge computing scenarios, which makes use of MPTCP+IPv6 to support multi-homing for resilience, and multi-path transport for load balancing. As a proof of concept, we show that the platform is (1) compatible with IPv6, (2) utilizes load balancing when possible, and (3) provides robustness by network redundancy.
