sliCount property of the
RTCOutboundRtpStreamStats dictionary indicates how many Slice
Loss Indication (SLI) packets the
RTCRtpSender received from the remote
the RTP stream described by this object.
An SLI packet is used by a decoder to let the encoder (the sender) know that it's detected corruption of one or more consecutive macroblocks, in scan order, in the received media. In general, what's usually of interest is that the higher this number is, the more the stream data is becoming corrupted between the sender and the receiver, causing the receiver to request retransmits or to drop frames entirely.
An unsigned integer indicating the number of SLI packets the sender received from the
receiver due to lost runs of macroblocks. A high value of
sliCount may be
an indication of an unreliable network.
This is a very technical part of how video codecs work. For details, see RFC 4585: 6.3.2.
Note: This value is only present for video media.
