    • RRtpSession session; //Construct a new RTP session object
    • session.OpenL(); //Opens an RTP session and initializes it
  • Register for and handle events
    • RRtpSession:RegisterEventCallbackL
    • RRtpSendSource:RegisterEventCallbackL
    • RRtpReceiveSource:RegisterEventCallbackL
  • Access an RTP packet
  • Create a send stream
    • RRtpSendSource manages the creation and sending of RTP packets. Basically, an RTP session can have only one send stream.
  • Manage an RTP packet
  • Create a receive stream
    • RRtpReceivePacket is derived from RRtpPacket and provides a handle to a received RTP packet.
  • Manage the RTCP packets and reports
