This paper presents a futuristic framework for quality-of-service (QoS) mapping between practically categorized packet video and relative differentiated service (DiffServ or DS) network employing unified priority index and adaptive packet forwarding mechanism under a given pricing model (e.g., DiffServ level differentiated price/packet). Video categorization is based on the relative priority index (RPI), which represents the relative preference per each packet in terms of loss and delay. We propose an adaptive packet forwarding mechanism for a DiffServ network to provide persistent service differentiation. Effective QoS mapping is then performed by mapping video packets onto different DiffServ levels based on RPI. To verify the efficiency of proposed strategy, the end-to-end performance is evaluated through an error resilient packet video transmission using ITU-T H.263+ codec over a simulated DiffServ network. Results show that the proposed QoS mapping mechanism can exploit the relative DiffServ advantage and result in the persistent service differentiation among DiffServ levels and the enhanced end-to-end video quality with the same pricing constraint
