Multi-hypothesis motion compensated prediction (MHMCP) predicts a block from a weighted sum of multiple reference blocks in the frame buffer. By efficiently combining these reference blocks, MHMCP can provide less prediction errors so as to reduce the coding bit rates. Although MHMCP was originally proposed to achieve high coding efficiency, it has been observed recently that MHMCP can also enhance the error resilient property of compressed video. In this work, we investigate the error

More specifically, we study how the multi-hypothesis number as well as hypothesis coefficients influence the strength of propagating errors. Simulation results are given to confirm our analysis. Finally, several design principles for the MHMCP coder are derived based on our analysis and simulation results.
