Transmission of compressed video over error prone channels such as mobile networks is a challenging issue. Maintaining an acceptable quality of service in such an environment demands additional post-processing tools to limit the impact of uncorrected transmission errors. Significant visual degradation of a video stream occurs when the motion vector component is corrupted. In this paper, an effective and computationally efficient method for the recovery of lost motion vectors (MVs) is proposed. The novel idea selects a neighbouring block MV that has the minimum distance from an estimated MV. Simulation results are presented, including comparison with existing methods. Our method follows the performance of the best existing method by approximately 0.1-0.5 dB. However, it has a significant advantage in that it is 50% computationally simpler. This makes our method ideal for use in mobile handsets and other applications with limited processing power.
