Frame rate indicates the number of frames per second that are sent and received in a video stream.

A typical video call will strive to work at 30 frames per second (fps), and that number will drop depending on the processing capabilities of the endpoints, bandwidth available and network conditions.

The actual frame rate of a video session fluctuates a bit through time, usually due to packet loss.
