In this paper, a cross-layer adaptation scheme is proposed for quality of service (QoS) provision in the scalable video streaming of high definition (HD) content. The cross-layer parameters, which contain the video rate, payload length of a packet, the mode of modulation and coding scheme (MCS), can be dynamically adapted to minimize distortion of a video streaming under the given delay bound. Based on the channel quality and rate-distortion parameters, the proposed scheme formulates the problem of parameter selection into an optimization problem. Simulation results show that our approach guarantees video quality under QoS constraints.
