The most preferred mode for communication of multimedia data is through the TCP/IP protocol. But on the other hand the TCP/IP protocol produces huge packet loss unavoidable due to network traffic and congestion. In order to provide a efficient communication it is necessary to recover the loss of packets. The proposed scheme implements Hash based FEC with auto XOR scheme for this purpose. The scheme is implemented through Forward error correction, MD5 and XOR for providing efficient transmission of multimedia data. The proposed scheme provides transmission high accuracy, throughput and low latency and loss.
