Project: Packetizing MP3 Audio

Due: Project presentations will be on 13 April 2009 (in class). The project report is due 6 April 2009 (23:59 pm).

Below are the details of the project.

Project Scope

In this project, your task is to write a packetization routine that takes in an MP3 audio file and produces RTP packets from the file, following the standard and recommendations in RFC3119.

Your implementation will be added to the Yima Personal Edition streaming media server code. You will be given the source code of Yima PE. You then have to implement your packetization routines within this framework.

To submit your project, create a tarball of all yours sources, (please exclude sample audios, object files etc.), put it into IVLE workbin. Your source code should be properly commented with explanations to help me understand your code. You must include a README.txt file that explains how your code works.

How to Compile/Run under Linux

Instructions on how to install, compile and run Yima PE can be found in a PDF file here. More information will be given during the lecture on 9 February and can be found in the slides here.
