<span lang="en">This paper deals with the analysis of user perceived visual quality for mobile multimedia services. H.264/AVC is selected for low resolution video encoding, and 3G UMTS is considered for mobile data services. From subjective tests results, the combined impact of different service- and network-level parameters is inferred. As a result, different cross-layer adaptation alternatives are proposed to maximize the perceived quality level under different service conditions.</span>
