Forward Error Correction - general properties

To provide higher-quality content to clients that have unreliable network connections, you can use forward error correction (FEC). FEC sends data packets with redundant data that the client uses to correct missing or corrupted data packets during playback. FEC is useful for wireless networks, satellites, or wide area network (WAN) connections that have long round-trip times between the client and server.

Item Description
FEC packets per span Enter the number of redundant data packets that can be sent with each portion of content. The default value is 24. You can enter a value from 0 to 24. A value of 0 disables forward error correction.
