firCount property of the
RTCInboundRtpStreamStats dictionary indicates the number of
Full Intra Request (FIR) packets have been sent by
the receiver to the sender. The receiver sends a FIR packet when the stream
falls behind and needs to skip frames in order to catch up.
var firCount = rtcInboundRtpStreamStats.firCount;
An integer value indicating how many FIR packets have been received by the sender during the current connection. This statistic is available only for video tracks.
The receiver sends a FIR packet to the sender any time it falls bahind or loses packets and cannot decode the incoming stream any longer because of the lost data. This tells the sender to send a full frame instead of a delta frame, so that the receiver can catch up.
firCount is, the more often frames were dropped, which may be
an indication that the media's bit rate is too high for the available bandwidth, or that
the receiving device is overburdened and is therefore unable to process the incoming
