Streaming Video as Space – Divided Sub-Frames over Wireless Networks

Real time video streaming suffers from lost, delayed, and corrupted frames due to the transmission over error prone channels. As an effect of that, the user may notice a frozen picture in their screen. In this work, we propose a technique to eliminate the frozen video and provide a satisfactory quality to the mobile viewer by splitting the video frames into sub- frames. The multiple descriptions coding (MDC) is used to generate multiple bitstreams based on frame splitting and transmitted over multichannels. We evaluate our approach by using mean opinion score (MOS) measurements. MOS is used to evaluate our scenarios where the users observe three levels of frame losses for real time video streaming. The results show that our technique significantly improves the video smoothness on the mobile device in the presence of frame losses during the transmission.
