catalyst 3750G multicast packet loss

hello, I have setup a multicast network with a 3750G as below. There is 1 multicast group sending from the TX to RX servers, the 3750G is setup with as the RP.

TX Server <====> 3750G as RP <====> RX Server

I have observed some multicast packet loss on the switch, but I could not figure out what's the root cause of the packet loss. The cpus usage of the 3750G switch was always below 10%.

What's the root cost of the multicast packet loss even the multicast data rate is low?

Why the is some packet drop count in the "Supervisor TxQueue Drop Statistics"?
