I need to use udp because my application is an h323/sip endpoint.
RTP uses udp sockets to transmit/receive audio/video data.
RTCP can be used to manage packet loss.

But in this case packets are not lost by the network. If I use wireshark
I can see all the packets.

I think that there is a problem in my code. I know that gui messages can
interfere with socket messages. So I've created a worker thread that
manage socket in its own message loop.

Could be the problem in the way I create/use the message loop in worker
This is the execute method (DoInit create the socket):

procedure TWorkerThread.Execute;

Inside the message loop method, I allocate fThreadHandle and then begin
dispatch messages.

procedure TWorkerThread.MessageLoop;
  //GetMessage return false on WM_QUIT
  while (GetMessage(lMsg,0,0,0))and(not self.Terminated) do

The DoInit method is called before AllocateHWnd, so the socket is
created before. Could be here the problem?

It seems that the thread is not fast enought to elaborate socket
messages. Or that the gui slow the worker thread in some way. If I call
GetCurrentThreadID inside the DataAvailable the result is the id of the
worker thread.
The only thing done inside the DataAvailable callback is check packet
The cpu is used about 12%.

I've tried to set the process priority (thank you Angus), but nothig

What kind of performance do you reach using udp sockets? I think that my
performance are not satisfactory.

Thank you for your help.
