This document provides a general mechanism to use the header
extension feature of RTP (the Real-Time Transport Protocol). It
provides the option to use a small number of small extensions in each
RTP packet, where the universe of possible extensions is large and
registration is de-centralized. The actual extensions in use in a
session are signaled in the setup information for that session.
This document is a product of the Audio/Video Transport Working Group of the IETF.
This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
