In this chapter, we present the possibility of detecting errors in H.264/AVC encoded video streams. Standard methods usually discard the damaged received packet. Since they can still contain valid information, the localization of the corrupted information elements prevents discarding of the error-free data. The proposed error detection method exploits the set of entropy coded words as well as range and significance of the H.264/AVC information elements. The performance evaluation of the presented technique is performed for various bit error probabilities. The results are compared to the typical packet discard approach. Particular focus is given on low-rate video sequences.
