Cool. The answer depends on which layer you intend to put error
Some FEC protects against the corruption some bits within a datagram (or
on permanent storage), while I think others are meant to recover
entirely lost frames (whatever that means).
Depending on that, if I understand the FEC concept, it could presumably
be done in a:
- access plugin & access output plugin, e.g. RTP)
- demux plugin & mux plugin, e.g. MPEG-TS)
- codec plugins, e.g. H264)
