This paper is concerned with transporting video information via multihop mobile ad-hoc channels. The major problem with transmitting real-time video information over these channels is the issue of link reliability. To improve the quality of the video reception we propose a cross layer feedback control mechanism that can allow the application layer to adapt itself to a dynamically changing network topology. We also present packet transmission strategies capable of recovering video signals under long bursts of packet drops, typical of a route change condition. This feedback control scheme has been developed for transmission of RTP/UDP/IP packets using the emerging H.264/AVC video-coding standard.
