Thanks for your help.  Can you please help me understand which VLC missing
key frame?

Here is my setting:
1. Have a vlc streamg the video to Darwin (server)
2. Have a vlc on client watch that sdp file by hitting Darwin

When you say missing key frame is it because
1. VLC on server misses it when sending out? or
2. VLC on client misses receiving it?
