The purpose of this paper is to study the packet loss effect on MPEG video transmission quality in wireless networks. First, we consider the distribution of packet losses in wireless network, including distributed and burst packet losses. Besides, we also discuss the additional packet drops by the play-out buffer at the received end, and the effect of the transmission packet size on the video delivered quality. From the results, we find that the effect of burst packet losses on the video delivered quality is less than distributed packet losses in the same packet loss rate. Moreover, the smaller size of the play-out buffer leads to more packet drops and worse video quality. Finally, if there is no video recovery for video transmission, the video delivered quality of the larger packet size will be better than smaller packet size
