Abstract-- This paper presents a client-driven rate-distortion
optimized packet scheduling algorithm for streaming multiple
description (MD) encoded video, where the descriptions are
distributed among different video-on-demand servers. Previously,
Multiple Description Coding (MDC) has been proposed to
provide reliable video communication within a content delivery
network, where the main goal was to imitate path diversity by
using multiple servers concurrently. Although this approach can
alleviate the severe effects of bursty packet losses, transmitting
video packets in a time-sensitive and network-adaptive manner
is fundamental to the success of MD streaming. Hence, in this
paper we propose a packet scheduling algorithm that maximizes
the quality of the video rendered at the client under the given
