I still have a lot of loss on windows when streaming from ffmpeg to ffplay.
I found out that all this problems go away when the receive buffer is
I don't know how big the buffer can be set on other platforms, but on
windows, a buffer size of 0x3FFFF [262143 bytes] works like a charm without
any losses.

would it be possible to increase the default receive buffer size for udp to
0x3FFFF, at least on windows systems?
