Gaps in playout can occur with retransmission based IPTV systems under conditions of severe packet loss, or due to server congestion.


Long playout gaps - typically several seconds in length.


Check the packet loss rate to distinguish between gaps due to transmission problems and server congestion.

Identify the source of packet loss.
