In this paper, we propose the rate control scheme reducing frame skipping at low bit-rate. As the method considering lossy parts in the compressing process at the existing scheme, the proposed scheme is improved by subtracting the converted bits from the target bit-rate of the current frame. The converted bits are the value resulted from multiplying the ratio of the current frame MAD to the previous frame MAD by the compressed bits changed from the remaining values after compressing the previous frame.
