The main challenge of real time video streaming over a wireless network is to provide good quality service (QoS) to the mobile viewer. However, wireless networks have a limited bandwidth that may not be able to handle the continues video frame sequence and also with the possibility that video frames could be dropped or corrupted during the transmission. This could severely affect the video quality. In this study we come up with a mechanism to eliminate the frozen video and provide a quality satisfactory for the mobile viewer. This can be done by splitting the video frames to sub-frame and transmitted over multiple channels. We will present a subjective test, the Mean Opinion Score (MOS). MOS is used to evaluate our scenarios where the users can observe three levels of frame losses for real time video streaming. The results for our technique significantly improves the indicate perceived that video quality.
