As IEEE 802.11 wireless devices have become increasingly widespread, providing Quality of Service in the context of H.264/AVC, the video coding standard for future multimedia networking, has become an important issue in the fields of communication and networking. Cross-Layer Adaptive Video Prioritization (CAVP) is a cross-layer framework that prioritizes video frame transmission according to the application-layer information and the MAC layer transmission condition. In this chapter, a Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR) estimation method is proposed to sort out different priorities of H.264/ AVC (Advanced Video Coding) video frames at the application layer to provide user-centric media quality estimation. Compared to previous heuristic algorithms, the authors also investigate a theoretic access delay estimator to monitor the wireless medium access delay at the MAC layer
