This document describes an RTP payload format for the transportation of encoded and multiplexed MPEG-4 streams. MPEG-4 is a standard whose aims are to define a generic way to code natural or synthetic scenes. MPEG-4, among other things, supports a normative interface to Intel- lectual Property Management and Protection Systems. MPEG-4 also gives methods to synchronise and multiplex several MPEG-4 encoded streams. RTP, on the other hand, is a protocol that has been especially writ- ten for multimedia stream over the IP network, and to use RTP for the carriage of MPEG-4 data does make sense, enabling such applica- tions as Video on demand or Multicast Teleconferencing.
