This document defines a mechanism by which packets of Real-Time Tranport Protocol (RTP) video streams encoded with the VP8 codec can indicate, in an RTP header extension, the temporal layer information about the frame encoded in the RTP packet. This information can be used in a middlebox performing bandwidth management of streams without requiring it to decrypt the streams.
