Off the original topic, but the above raises one question. I use Theora 
for a video conference application, that transfer the theora packages 
via RTP over UDP. This will by its very nature cause packet loss, so all 
frames _will not_ come through, by the nature of such systems.

The question then is what I should do when I lose a frame. There is no 
way I can guaranty that all packets (and thus frames) come through in a 
real-time ip-based system.

PS: I do occationally see that the image freeze or get artifacts. Is 
that what will happen if you lose a frame?
