|Subject:||[Linphone-developers] mediastreamer stutter for dropped UDP packets|
|Date:||Sun, 5 Jan 2014 01:45:15 +0000|
I'm using mediastreamer v2.8.2 with a voice application in a Wi-Fi network. It's working fairly well in nominal operation, however...
When the received Wi-Fi signal is weak so that incoming packets are going missing, we hear a "stuttering" which sounds as though the last received packet may be being repeated over and over again, for several seconds. I would rather that it doesn't repeat the last packet indefinitely, which sounds bad, but just goes silent instead.
I found this:
which made me think perhaps using a zero value for the jitt_comp parameter of audio_stream_start_with_sndcards() could cause this behaviour. And using a non-zero value should prevent such endless repeating of the last received packet. So I tried values of 20 and 200 for the jitt_comp parameter. But that doesn't seem to make a difference.
Is there some way to control the way mediastreamer behaves regarding missing UDP packets?
Also, is there some way to get status on missing packets?
At first I thought it was entirely a mediastreamer function. But now I think the stutter is caused by the ALSA driver when the application (mediastreamer/oRTP in this case) is not writing new audio data into the ALSA audio buffer.
