That works fine if latency+window size is low, so that segments are
You really should also do the math and factor in the latency that
comes from doing something like this, assuming you lose a packet. G.
114 recommends an end to end latency of no more than 150ms for voice
applications, where over 400ms is unacceptable (between 150 and 400
you should indicate that performance is not ideal).
Finally, some audio codecs work well with fairly high amounts of loss
- I'd recommend doing something like that first. iLBC does this really
well. G.729 etc. do not - they rely on context, so a single packet
lost results in several packets of lost audio (and so, silence). iLBC
doesn't rely on context, and quality degrades during packet loss
before you get silence.
The i stands for Internet - so no surprise it works great in typical
