H.263 Video (H.263+). C. Bormann: AUTHOR [+10]

Abstract

This document specifies an RTP payload header format applicable to the transmission of video streams generated based on the 1998 version of ITU-T Recommendation H.263 [4]. Because the 1998 version of H.263 is a superset of the 1996 syntax, this format can also be used with the 1996 version of H.263 [3], and is recommended for this use by new implementations. This format does not replace RFC 2190, which continues to be used by existing implementations, and may be required for backward compatibility in new implementations. Implementations using the new features of the 1998 version of H.263 shall use the format described in this document.

1. Introduction

This document specifies an RTP payload header format applicable to

the transmission of video streams generated based on the 1998 version

of ITU-T Recommendation H.263 [4]. Because the 1998 version of H.263

is a superset of the 1996 syntax, this format can also be used with

the 1996 version of H.263 [3], and is recommended for this use by new

implementations. This format does not replace RFC 2190, which

continues to be used by existing implementations, and may be required

for backward compatibility in new implementations. Implementations

using the new features of the 1998 version of H.263 shall use the

format described in this document.

The 1998 version of ITU-T Recommendation H.263 added numerous coding

options to improve codec performance over the 1996 version. The 1998

version is referred to as H.263+ in this document. Among the new

options, the ones with the biggest impact on the RTP payload

specification and the error resilience of the video content are the

slice structured mode, the independent segment decoding mode, the

reference picture selection mode, and the scalability mode. This

section summarizes the impact of...
