This memo defines version 2.0 of the Real-Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP 2.0). RTSP 2.0 is an application-layer protocol for the setup and control over the delivery of data with real-time properties, typically streaming media. Streaming media is, for instance, video on demand or audio live streaming. Put simply, RTSP acts as a "network remote control" for multimedia servers.

   This memorandum defines the Real-Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP)    version 2.0, which obsoletes RTSP version 1.0 defined in RFC 2326.

   RTSP is an application-layer protocol for the setup and control of    the delivery of data with real-time properties.  RTSP provides an    extensible framework to enable controlled, on-demand delivery of    real-time data, such as audio and video.  Sources of data can include    both live data feeds and stored clips.  This protocol is intended to    control multiple data delivery sessions; provide a means for choosing    delivery channels such as UDP, multicast UDP, and TCP; and provide a    means for choosing delivery mechanisms based upon RTP (RFC 3550).
