CU-RTC-Web: Customizable, Ubiquitous Real Time Communication over the Web

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.
