Description

RTP Audio NextGen is an audio streaming system with support for SCTP as well as UDP transport. It is a highly advanced and reworked version of the former RTP Audio system with support for SCTP streams and SCTP partial reliability. Furthermore, it also contains a QoS management interface. RTP Audio NextGen may use layered encoding, that is the audio quality may be adapted according to QoS constraints. The main purpose of this tool is to support transport protocol and QoS research, by providing a realistic application for performance testing.

In order to start the server, run rtpa-server. It will wait for connections then. It will serve files in the current directory. See Test.list for an example; you need to provide appropriate list files referencing to some MP3 andor WAV files. MP3s or WAVs are not included in the package, you need to provide your own files!
Use the client rtpa-qclient (GUI version) or rtpa-client (command-line version) for testing the streaming. Example: rtpa-client rtpa://localhost/Test.list (replace "localhost" by your server name or IP address).
