XOR-Based Frame Loss Recovery Scheme for Video Streaming
High coding dependencies among video frames suffer from vulnerability to packet loss, which impacts the playback quality of video streaming. In this paper, according to the characteristics of MPEG4/H.264 encoding methods, the authors propose a simple and low-complexity XOR-based FEC frame loss recovery scheme. Within an entire Group Of Pictures (GOP), the proposed scheme shows the ability to recover simultaneously I-frame loss and one P-frame loss. The high frame loss resilience improves the playback QoS of compressed video streaming. The mathematical analysis reveals that the proposed scheme has 72.7% performance improvement than no frame loss protection in term of full GOP frames successful decoding rate.
