Am using a client to recieve data packets from a server. For higher bitrate contents, most of the packets are geting dropped which leads to glitches.
What can be the reason for this ?
i found out that by increasing the socket buffer size, these glitches go off... is there a way to flush out the socket buffers ?
Are you using UDP?
UDP is not supposed to be reliable. If you want reliable tranfer of data use TCP.
If TCP is dropping packet then something is seriously wrong with your system.
