We propose multiple description (MD) video coders which use motion compensated predictions. Our MD video coders utilize MD transform coding and three separate prediction paths at the encoder, to mimic the three possible scenarios at the decoder: both descriptions received or either of the single descriptions received. We provide three different algorithms to control the mismatch between the prediction loops at the encoder and decoder. The results show that when the main prediction loop is the central loop, it is important to have side prediction loops and transmit some redundancy information to control mismatch.
