RFC 5215, "RTP Payload Format for Vorbis Encoded Audio", August 2008

Source of RFC: avt (rai)

Errata ID: 1661

Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 3.1.1, pg.11 says:

   The Ident field is set with the value that will be used by the Raw
   Payload Packets to address this Configuration.  The Fragment type is
   set to 0 because the packet bears the full Packed configuration.  The
|  number of the packet is set to 1.
   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

It should say:

   The Ident field is set with the value that will be used by the Raw
   Payload Packets to address this Configuration.  The Fragment type is
   set to 0 because the packet bears the full Packed configuration.  The
|  number of packets is set to 1.
   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Notes:

Rationale:

According to Section 2.2 of the RFC, the last field in the
Payload Header is "number of packets", not "number of the packet"
(which might be misunderstood as some kind of sequence number).
It seems to be prudent to use the precise field name.
