In this paper, we address the problem of video transmission over unreliable networks, such as the Internet, where packet losses occur. The most recent literature indicates multiple description (MD) as a promising coding approach to handle this issue. Moreover, it has been shown also how important the use of motion compensation prediction is in an MD-coding scheme. This paper proposes two architectures for multiple description video coding, both of them are based on the motion compensation prediction loop. The common characteristic of the two architectures is the use of a polyphase down-sampling technique to create the MDs and to introduce cross-redundancy among the descriptions. The first scheme, that we call drift-compensation multiple description video coder (DC-MDVC) appears very robust when used in an error-prone environment, but it can provide only two descriptions. The second architecture, called independent flow multiple description video coder (IF-MDVC), generates multiple sets of data before the motion compensation loop; in this case, there are no severe limitations in the selection of the number of descriptions used by the coder.
