I'll have to do this. I believe you are correct. I tried lowering the 
resolution from 1080 to 720 both sending and receiving and still having 
problems. I need to get the video to disk (not a problem if I use "-c:v 
copy") and then transcode later which should solve my problems. I'll 
find some way to run one at a time. Thanks for all your help.
