We study motion compensated fine granular scalable (MC-FGS) video transmission over multiinput multioutput (MIMO) wireless channels applicable to video streaming, where leaky and partial prediction schemes are applied in the enhancement layer of MC-FGS to exploit the tradeoff between error propagation and coding efficiency. For reliable transmission, we propose unequal error protection (UEP) by considering a tradeoff between reliability and data rates, which are controlled by forward error correction and MIMO mode selection to minimize the average distortion. In a high Doppler environment, where it is hard to get an accurate channel estimate, we investigate the performance of the proposed MC-FGS video transmission scheme with joint control of both the leaky and partial prediction parameters, and the UEP. In a slow fading channel, where the channel throughput can be estimated at the transmitter, adaptive control of prediction parameters is considered.
