i am not familar with rtp (i assume this stands for real time protocol, is
that correct). if it is not too much to ask would you mind explaining (to a
non-programmer) how this protocol may affect the quality of the video.

and from an end users (me) point of view (pov) what would better refer to.
ie, if it were / is possible to use the same settings, codec, hardware, etc
to connect to a reflector with the cu header protocol then do the same or
similar thing with rtp when a remote participant views my video what would
the difference be.

would similar changes due to using rtp also apply to audio.
