                       RTP Stream Pause and Resume


   With the increased popularity of real-time multimedia applications,    it is desirable to provide good control of resource usage, and users    also demand more control over communication sessions.  This document    describes how a receiver in a multimedia conversation can pause and    resume incoming data from a sender by sending real-time feedback    messages when using the Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) for real-    time data transport.  This document extends the Codec Control Message    (CCM) RTP Control Protocol (RTCP) feedback package by explicitly    allowing and describing specific use of existing CCMs and adding a    group of new real-time feedback messages used to pause and resume RTP    data streams.  This document updates RFC 5104.
