IETF DataTracker: draft-ietf-avt-info-repair

This topic is discussed further in our paper on A Survey of Packet Loss Recovery Techniques for Streaming Media published in IEEE Network Magazine in September 1998.

This draft summarizes a range of possible techniques for the repair of continuous media streams subject to packet loss. The techniques discussed include redundant transmission, retransmission, interleaving and forward error correction. The range of applicability of these techniques is noted, together with the protocol requirements and dependencies.
