In real-time audio and video communication, jitter is the variation in the delay of data packets transmitted continuously on the network.
A major factor behind jitter is that packets are routed individually through different paths in a packet-switched network.
Jitter often results in packet loss and network congestion. It may result in pixelated video and otherwise adversely impact the end user experience.
The Agora RTC SDK provides API methods for developers to conduct last-mile probe tests before starting a call, which reports the uplink and downlink network jitter.
