In the pFormatCtx->bit_rate, and pCodecCtx->bit_rate, I see on receiver end, they are all zero. I understand since it is live streaming bit rate isn't stuffed there, but I would like to know if there is any way I could retrieve actual bit rate frame was transmitted on, on client side (i.e. decoder side decoding video over network).

Did you try running avformat_find_stream_info() after opening the codec context and before checking the bitrate fields?
