This draft technical proposal describes how MPEG DMIF (Delivery Multimedia Integration Framework) can be used with RTSP for setting MPEG-4 service sessions and subsequently detaching the service. DMIF creates an instance of DMIF RTSP augmented with QoS appropriate for each MPEG-4 stream and also makes use of the FlexMux to carry multiple streams on a single UDP or TCP IP flow. The stream control play/pause etc. using RTSP is executed directly by the MPEG-4 Systems Sync Layer. Comments are solicited and should be addressed to the working group's mailing list at and/or the authors.
