 Hi Rahul,

This is one kind on scenario for  SSRC.

At the start of an RTP session, the sender randomly chooses an initial value
of the timestamp and SSRC. If both the sender and receiver happen to choose
the same SSRC, both sides choose again to ensure each have a different SSRC.

Does this happen?
