crtpdumpz v1.0.1

RTP packet traces for IPTV systems are large, but well structured. While they compress reasonably well with a general-purpose compression utility, such as gzip, better performance can be achieved using a compressor that understands the structure of RTP data.

The crtpdumpz utility is such a compressor, built using the ideas outlined in RFC 2508.
