Technical Summary

This document specifies how an RTP session can contain RTP Streams  with media from multiple media types such as audio, video,
and text.  This has been restricted by the RTP Specification, and thus this  document updates RFC 3550 and RFC 3551 to enable this
behavior for  applications that satisfy the applicability for using multiple media  types in a single RTP session.
