Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG
To: IETF-Announce Cc: RFC Editor , rtcweb mailing list , rtcweb chair Subject: Protocol Action: 'Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC): Media Transport and Use of RTP' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-rtcweb-rtp-usage-25.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC): Media Transport and Use of RTP' (draft-ietf-rtcweb-rtp-usage-25.txt) as Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Real-Time Communication in WEB-browsers Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Ben Campbell, Barry Leiba and Alissa Cooper. A URL of this Internet Draft is: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-rtcweb-rtp-usage/
Technical Summary The Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) framework provides support for direct interactive rich communication using audio, video, text, and other media between two peers' web-browsers. This document describes the media transport aspects of the WebRTC framework. It specifies how the Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) is used in the WebRTC context, and gives requirements for which RTP features, profiles, and extensions need to be supported. Working Group Summary The document passed initial WG last call at version 14, with an outstanding issue about FEC remaining; that has since been split into a new document (draft-ietf-rtcweb-fec). Between that draft and this there were also additional comments on video orientation and media stream identification which resulted in new text. I do not believe there were areas where consensus is particularly rough at this point. Document Quality There are multiple implementations of the WebRTC framework and they generally interoperate. The review of the draft by the working group was adequate, if prolonged. It should be noted that some less-used aspects of RTP processing are well-understood by only a small number of participants, but the related matters appear to be resolved. Personnel Ted Hardie is the Document Shepherd. Alissa Cooper is the Responsible Area Director. RFC Editor Note draft-ietf-avtcore-rtp-topologies-update should be changed from a normative reference to an informative reference.
