To improve the error resilience and video quality over wireless networks, we propose a novel packet-level layer-based interleaving unequal forward error correction (LIU-FEC) method. First, a scalable layer-based interleaving architecture is proposed for improving the efficiency of FEC from successive packet losses in variable channel conditions. The interleaved transmission across different scalable layers can efficiently disperse the consecutive packet losses into different scalable layers. Second, a closed form FEC assignment solution is proposed for minimizing video quality degradation using simple layer-based error propagation metric in hierarchical prediction structure. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm offers higher PSNR values in various channel status, compared to the conventional FEC algorithm.
