This paper presents a novel video scheduling algorithm for streaming MPEG video over multi-user shared wireless link, in which video sessions are scheduled based on both location-dependent channel condition and instantaneous frame delay. This algorithm also employs a pro-active frame discard mechanism to discard potential problematic frames. The numerical results show that the proposed algorithm is able to significantly improve link throughput and guarantee long-term fairness.
