With the increased popularity of real-time multimedia applications, users demand more control over communication sessions. This document describes how a receiver in a multimedia conversation can pause and resume incoming data from a sender by sending real-time feedback messages when using Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) for real time data transport. This document extends the Codec Control Messages (CCM) RTCP feedback package by adding a group of new real-time feedback messages used to pause and resume RTP data streams.
