The RTP payload formats described in this document specify how MPEG-4 Audio [14496-3] and MPEG-4 Visual streams [14496-2] are to be fragmented and mapped directly onto RTP packets.

            RTP Payload Format for MPEG-4 Audio/Visual Streams


   This document describes Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) payload    formats for carrying each of MPEG-4 Audio and MPEG-4 Visual    bitstreams without using MPEG-4 Systems.  This document obsoletes RFC    3016.  It contains a summary of changes from RFC 3016 and discusses    backward compatibility to RFC 3016.  It is a necessary revision of    RFC 3016 in order to correct misalignments with the 3GPP Packet-    switched Streaming Service (PSS) specification regarding the RTP    payload format for MPEG-4 Audio.

   For the purpose of directly mapping MPEG-4 Audio/Visual bitstreams    onto RTP packets, this document provides specifications for the use    of RTP header fields and also specifies fragmentation rules.  It also    provides specifications for Media Type registration and the use of    the Session Description Protocol (SDP).  The audio payload format    described in this document has some limitations related to the    signaling of audio codec parameters for the required multiplexing    format.  Therefore, new system designs should utilize RFC 3640, which    does not have these restrictions.  Nevertheless, this revision of RFC    3016 is provided to update and complete the specification and to    enable interoperable implementations.
