ITU H.223

H.223 is a multiplexing and framing protocol for multimedia streams over fixed-rate channels. It is used by video phones to send their data over the PSTN.


H.223 was developed by the ["ITU-T"].

Protocol dependencies

  • Typically, H.223 is the lowest software layer, so depends only on hardware.
  • However, Wireshark only dissects H.223 when it is transferred over ["TCP"], ["IAX2"], or ["RTP"].

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).


The H.223 dissector is partially functional. It currently only dissects H.223 Level 2. Its handling of complex multiplex tables is untested.

Preference Settings

There are no configurable preferences for H.223

Example capture file

Display Filter

A complete list of H.223 display filter fields can be found in the [ display filter reference]

  • Show only the H.223 based traffic:


Since post 0.10.12 Wireshark only!

Capture Filter

You cannot filter H.223 while capturing.
