Streaming video profile is the subject of an Amendment of MPEG-4, and is developed in response to the growing need on a video coding standard for streaming video over the Internet. It provides the capability to distribute single-layered frame-based video over a wide range of bit rates with high coding efficiency. It also provides fine granularity scalability (FGS), and its combination with temporal scalability, to address a variety of challenging problems in delivering video over the Internet. This paper provides an overview of the FGS video coding technique in this Amendment of the MPEG-4
