Title : An RTP Payload Format for Generic FEC with Uneven
Author(s) : A. Li et al.
Filename : draft-ietf-avt-ulp-05.txt
Pages : 30
Date : 30-Apr-02
This document specifies a payload format for generic forward error
correction to achieve uneven level protection (ULP) for media data
encapsulated in RTP. It is an extension of the forward error
correction scheme specified in RFC 2733 , and it is based on the
same exclusive-or (parity) operation. This payload format allows end
systems to apply protection using arbitrary protection lengths and
levels, in addition to using arbitrary protection group sizes. It
also enables both complete recovery or partial recovery of the
critical payload and RTP header fields depending on the packet loss
situation. This scheme is completely backward compatible with non-FEC
capable hosts and with hosts that are only capable of handling the
FEC schemes specified in RFC 2733 . Those receivers that do not
know about ULP forward error correction can simply ignore the

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
