Reduce packet loss in UDP

I want to reduce packet loss in UDP application. I know that UDP is not reliable protocol but still want minimum packet loss. There might be some setting for UDP in linux.
Also want ask .. As like TCP, UDP also support auto tuning

Ok, I'm going to take a shot at this. Udp packets are lost on the network. If you are losing a lot of udp packets, you need to look at fixing your network.

Just because an application uses udp, that doesn't necessarily mean there is no error correction. It just happens higher in the osi stack or with the application itself.

I don't know about the auto tuning.
