In this letter, we present an improved method for the independence test procedure in the convolutional multicast algorithm proposed by Erez and Feder. We employ the linear independence test vectors to check the independence of the partial encoding vectors in the main program of Erez's convolutional multicast algorithm. It turns out that compared with the previous approach of computing the determinants of the correlative matrices, carrying out the independence test vectors can reduce the computational complexity.
