Understanding Fast Recovery

Fast Recovery is accomplished by enabling forward error correction (FEC) on a publishing point. With the help of FEC, Windows Media Player can usually recover lost or damaged data packets without having to request that the data be resent by the Windows Media server. In environments that are subject to latency problems, such as satellite networks and other wireless networks, this process of receiving data is much more efficient. You can specify the amount of error correction data transmitted per span of data sent on the Forward Error Correction properties sheet.
