Abstract

Combination of RTP and UDP is commonly used in realtime video streaming, today. In fear of packet loss, FEC' may be used to recover the lost packet data in RTP. But there is a limit in the tolerance to a burst packet loss. We propose to transmit real-time video streams that have tolerance to a burst packet loss by combining RTP with PR-SCTP. By retransmission within the range of the delay restriction specified by PR-SCTP while doing buffering, the tolerance to a burst packet loss can be improved in exchange for some delay. We have implemented the proposed method as a translator of RTP in consideration of interoperability with the existing application implemented with RTP/UDP. And we artificially caused the burst-packet loss as an experiment in the translator and evaluate the outcome of an experiment.
