...or implement an FEC. :)
Most of the effort for FECs over streaming is ideally suited for
random loss at the last mile. But many of the applications of these
FECs are targeting the network elements and not the encoder/sender. I
think this is more market/biz-model driven and not a technical
limitation. So players with a stake in the infrastructure - both
vendors and providers - are leaning toward application of the FEC into
the network, and players with content who just want eyeballs clearly
need the implementation in the application encoder/sender/receiver.
That said, VLC would be an ideal candidate for an FEC. With the
growing list of FECs available, both public and proprietary, and
stream FEC signalling mechanism may be the right direction for FLC.
..as a suggested starting point.
