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 Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) for real time data transport. This document extends the Codec Control Messages (CCM) RTCP feedback package by explicitly allowing and describing specific use of existing CCM messages and adding a group of new real- time feedback messages used to pause and resume RTP data streams. This document updates RFC 5104.
