This paper presents a reliable scalable video multicast with source diversity and inter-source network decoding in lossy networks. The source diversity technique gives path diversity providing a better quality of layered video transmission under hostile environments. For each source, an optimization formulation is set up to find the best transmission route of each transmitting video layer. The objectives of the formulation are to maximize the summation of information values of video layers and transmission reliability.
