What is MPTS (Multiple Program Transport Stream)?
A transport stream that offers more than one program is called a Multiple Program Transport Stream; A transport stream that offers just one program is called a Single Program Transport Stream (SPTS). Some of the components to MPTS are:
PID = Packet ID
CC = Continuity Counter
PCR = Program Clock Reference
PID - Each Table or elementary stream is identified by a PID. A de-multiplexer will use PIDs to reassemble a stream.
PCR - Used to keep the audio and the video of a program in sync.
CC - Used to count the packets as they come in. This can be used to identify missing packets or Out of Order packets.
