This is the result of vlc sending chunks of audio at a time, probably
due to a large buffer from pulseaudio. Perhaps requesting a lower
latency helps. (The easiest way to test that is just to open up

As long as the receiving end has a big enough buffer, the delivery of
rtp packets in batches should not matter much though, assuming
low-latency is nog a requirement. How is the receiving end configured?
