This paper considers video transmissions through Smartphones in scenarios of emergency networks where satellite links are employed. Unfortunately, satellite channels may be affected by attenuation and fading, causing significant and frequent variations of the link quality. For this reason, static compression, coding and resource allocation are not optimal solutions to guarantee a satisfactory level of Quality of Experience: we propose to apply two techniques: i) a dynamic transmission rate allocation able to assign resources to the links according to their conditions; ii) an application layer joint coder for video transmission capable of adaptively compressing and protecting the transmitted video frames so recovering losses. The performance investigation of the proposal has been carried out through emulation and the obtained results are satisfactory and open the doors to future development of the proposal.
