Fast Recovery

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

Fast Recovery is accomplished by enabling forward error correction (FEC) on a publishing point in Windows Media Services. 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.
