Multimedia transmission over cloud infrastructure is a hot research topic worldwide. It is very strongly related to video streaming, VoIP, mobile networks, and computer networks. The goal is a reliable integration of telephony, video and audio transmission, computing and broadband transmission based on cloud computing. One right approach to pave the way for mobile multimedia and cloud computing is Multiple Description Coding (MDC), i.e. the solution would be: TCP/IP and similar protocols to be used for transmission of text files, and multiple description coding \"Send and forget\" algorithm to be used as transmission method for multimedia over the cloud. Multiple description coding would improve the quality of service and would provide new service of rate adaptive streaming.
