Real-Time Media and Peer-to-Peer Transport API
Unofficial Draft 10 August 2012
This specification describes a proposal to bring real-time communications capabilities to web browsers. It addresses four critical requirements: it is designed to honor the key tenets of the web architecture, it supports a customizable response to changing network quality, ubiquitous deployability on existing network infrastructure, and flexibility in supporting popular media formats and codecs, as well as openness to future innovation.
An API is described for sourcing and terminating streams of real-time media in a browser. The API provides a means of describing how media streams are serialized into a stream of RTP packets or deserialized from a stream of packets.
The API is structed in two sections: Real-Time Media Streaming and Real-Time, Peer-to-Peer Transport.
