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) Block                      for the Bytes Discarded Metric


   The RTP Control Protocol (RTCP) is used in conjunction with the Real-    time Transport Protocol (RTP) 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 report    computing the bytes discarded from the de-jitter buffer after    successful reception.
