RTP (Real-Time Protocol) is the core protocol used for streaming audio and video in slots. It provides a way for clients to communicate with servers, and it enables the transmission of audio and video data without any loss.
RTP provides a reliable, low-latency transport for audio and video data.
RTP works by establishing a connection between the client and server. Once connected, the server sends RTP packets to the client.
The RTP packets contain information about the current audio or video stream, as well as information about the media buffering status of the stream. The client uses this information to determine how much buffer space to use, and it also uses it to determine when to send subsequent RTP packets.
Because RTP is a reliable protocol, clients can rely on it to send data without any loss. This means that clients can stream audio or video data without worrying about whether or not they will lose any data.
Furthermore, because RTP provides a low-latency transport, clients can stream media without having to worry about laggy playback.
