Implementation of RTP and MJPEG over RTP, supports large frames and multicasting
screen_shot2.JPG

Introduction

This is an implementation of RTP/MJPEG protocol in C#. I wrote this code back in 2005.

Background

This code was used for Elphel network cameras, multicasting RTP/MJPEG but it should be compatible with almost all RTP/MJPEG technologies. This code was written from reading the related RFCs.

Using the Code

RtpPacket.cs

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;

namespace RTPLib
{
    public class RtpPacket
    {
        public static readonly int rtp_version = 2; /* the version of RTP supported */
        public static readonly int rtp_length = 12; /* fixed RTP packet header size */
        public int version; /* the version of RTP should be 2 */ 
        public byte padding; /* the padding flag **/
        public byte extension; /* the extension flag - if any extra headers 
				for higher protocol */
        public int csrc_count; /* the source count */
        public bool marker; /* the marker status */
        public int payload_type;    /* the type of payload  */
        public ushort sequence_no;  /* the sequence number of the RTP packet */
        public uint timestamp;  /* the timestamp of the RTP packet */
        public uint source_id;  /* the source id  of the RTP packet */
        public RtpPacket(byte[] _data)
        {
            decode(_data);
        }
        public void decode(byte[] data)
        {
            /*byte[] data = new byte[12];
            Array.Copy(_data, data, 12);*/ /* there should be no need 
					to copy the header */
            version = data[0] >> 6;
            padding = (byte)(0x1 & (data[0] >> 5));
            extension = (byte)(0x1 & (data[0] >> 4));
            csrc_count = 0x1F & (data[0]);
            marker = ((data[1] >> 7) == 1);
            payload_type = data[1] & 0x7f; /* we will assume it's 26 -> RTP/MJPEG */
            sequence_no = Utils.HostToNetworkOrderShort
			(System.BitConverter.ToUInt16(data, 2));
            timestamp = Utils.SwapUnsignedInt(System.BitConverter.ToUInt32(data, 4));
            source_id = Utils.SwapUnsignedInt(System.BitConverter.ToUInt32(data, 8));
        }
    }
}

Notes

Please understand that I wrote this code back in 2005 and I haven't made any updates. If you think you can rearrange the code and provide comments, please let me know. I also hope for RTP/H.264 managed API implementation of existing open source projects.

Points of Interest

I am interested in creating Internet Exchange Points.
