The losses of packets cannot be avoided if real-time video is transported over error prone environments. To conceal missing parts of video pictures, the spatial and temporal correlation feature of natural video sequences is used. However, in some cases -for instance in case of a scene change -there is no temporal correlation available and thus spatial error concealment has to be used. This article proposes a flexible spatial error concealment based on directional interpolation method that
