Why are some multicast data packets lost when users start to watch video programs

When users request many multicast groups, the multicast device may not finish creating all the multicast forwarding entries when it receives multicast data packets. In this case, the device cannot find matching entries for some multicast data packets in a short time. Therefore, you will find a few multicast data packets dropped in interface traffic statistics. This packet loss will not affect image quality on user terminals.
