      RTP Payload Format for Raptor Forward Error Correction (FEC)

Abstract

   This document specifies an RTP payload format for the Forward Error
   Correction (FEC) repair data produced by the Raptor FEC Schemes.
   Raptor FEC Schemes are specified for use with the IETF FEC Framework
   that supports the transport of repair data over both UDP and RTP.
   This document specifies the payload format that is required for the
   use of RTP to carry Raptor repair flows.
