We propose a novel multiple description video coding scheme based on pre-and post-processing of video sequences without modifying the actual coding process itself, thus making it compatible with the current standard coding. In pre-processing, adaptive modes of temporal sampling are employed to regulate the motion change between frames before performing odd/even frame splitting, which facilitates good estimation of lost frames in post-processing after side decoding. Significantly, given a

Furthermore, to simplify Lagrangian optimization, a new optimization criterion is proposed based on the correlation of intra-and inter-descriptions. In the experiments, the proposed scheme achieves better performance compared with other tested multiple description coding (MDC) schemes in both an on-off MDC environment and lossy packet networks.
