This letter proposes a practical algorithm for video transmission of the scalable extension of H.264/AVC (SVC) over limited bit-rate and varying channel signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The proposal consists of SVC source-layer dropping and layered FEC using LDPC codes to maximize the video quality. The experimental results show that the proposed method realizes better video quality than the compared unequal error protection (UEP) without source-layer dropping. This implies that the dropping of a certain number of source-layers and using the resultant bit-budget for channel coding is more effective than the other UEP case which uses all possible source-layers.
