This document specifies a payload format for use in encoding HTTP within RTP. This payload format can be used for unreliable multicasting of resources such as Web pages, stock tickers, etc. As with other RTP applications, receiver feedback and group membership information is provided via RTCP. This specification is not expected to be used with unicast, since unicast applications will instead use HTTP over TCP.
