A known problem in video streaming is that loss of a packet usually results into loss of a whole video frame. In this paper we propose an error concealment algorithm specifically designed to handle this sort of losses. The technique exploits information in a few past frames (namely the motion vectors) in order to estimate the forward motion vectors of the last received frame. This information is used to project the last frame onto an estimate of the missing frame. The algorithm has been tested on MPEG-2 video, providing very satisfactory results, and outperforming by several dBs in PSNR the concealment technique based on repetition of the last received frame.
