RTP [RFC3550] provides a transport for real-time media flows such as audio and video together with the RTP Control Protocol (RTCP), which provides periodic feedback about the media streams received in a specific duration. In addition, RTCP can be used for timely feedback about individual events to report (e.g., packet loss) [RFC4585]. Both long-term and short-term feedback enable a media sender to adapt its media transmission and/or encoding dynamically to the observed path characteristics.

             RTP Control Protocol (RTCP) Extended Report (XR)                       for RLE of Discarded Packets


   The RTP Control Protocol (RTCP) is used in conjunction with the Real-    time Transport Protocol (RTP) in order to provide a variety of short-    term and long-term reception statistics.  The available reporting may    include aggregate information across longer periods of time as well    as individual packet reporting.  This document specifies a per-packet    report metric capturing individual packets discarded from the de-    jitter buffer after successful reception.
