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.
- Typically, H.223 is the lowest software layer, so depends only on hardware.
- However, ethereal only dissect H.223 when it is transferred over ["TCP"] or ["iax2"].
XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).
The H.223 dissector is partially functional. It currently only dissects H.223 Level 2. Its handling of complex multiplex tables is untested.
There are no configurable preferences for H.223
