What does queue mean, it comes up on movies ?
tcp/ip protocol uses a try to send one packet and then check if it got received ok
then it will send two packets and check
then it will send four packets and check
then it will send eight packets and check
you get the picture 8,16,32,64,128,256,512,1024,2048,4096, error ok lets resend one packet and check
so if no errors occur the packets sent increase rapidly. However if there is an error it goes back to one packet.
Now this is not really a problem if say you were downloading a file but if you are watching a time dependent streamed movie this might slow down to a point where the movie would stop . So the media player software buffers the data. It downloads a quantity into memory and then when the buffer is full it starts playing the movie. However if you get errors or a slow bandwidth of data it has to queue while it restores data into the now empty buffer memory and might sto pplaying the movie while it does this.
