The RTP Profile for Audio and Video Conferences with Minimal Control
(RTP/AVP) is the basis for many other profiles, such as the Secure
Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP/SAVP), the Extended RTP Profile for
Real-time Transport Control Protocol (RTCP)-Based Feedback (RTP/
AVPF), and the Extended Secure RTP Profile for RTCP-Based Feedback
(RTP/SAVPF). This document updates the RTP/AVP profile (and by
extension, the profiles that build upon it) to reflect changes in
audio codec usage since the document was originally published.
Working Group Summary:
There has been strong support for doing this update with a number of individuals being active. There was some discussion if also PCMA should be included, but there was no consensus on that, and the WG has chosen to progress without any additions to the list.
The recommnedation in this document matches actual deployment better than the original recommendations in what codecs was recommended to implement. With the approval of this specification many more implementations will fulfill the recommendations in this document than previous. The document has gotten pretty good review during its development and in WG last call.
Magnus Westerlund is Document Shepherd. Richard Barnes is responsible AD.
