In this paper, we propose an algorithm WMTA (wireless multimedia transmission algorithm) for multimedia transmission control over wireless-wired IP networks. The relationship between packet length and packet loss rate over the Markov wireless error model is investigated. Based on this character, the algorithm can detect the nature of packet losses by sending large and small packets alternately, and control the sending rate of nodes. Furthermore, by use of an updating factor K, the algorithm can adapt to the changes of network states quickly. Extensive computer simulations demonstrate that the proposed scheme is effective in satisfying the end to end quality of service and reducing the congestion loss rate in various network topologies.
