The selection of motion vectors plays an important role in the error propagation process between inter-frames. In this letter, an end-to-end prediction error calculation method is proposed and is used for the rate-distortion optimized selection of motion vectors. Simulation results show that the robustness of encoded video streams under error-prone environment is improved.
