Hi Everyone!

If you are like me, you use Wireshark every day.  For me that means troubleshooting many different network situations, including Voice traffic - VoIP.  Wireshark announced some significant changes coming to the Voice capabilities set within Wireshark, and I hope you are like me - extremely excited to see these. 

If you want to learn how to analyze/troubleshoot voice with Wireshark, check out my video:  

According to the Wireshark Web Site:

First: significant RTP Player redesign and improvements (see Wireshark User Documentation, Playing VoIP Calls and RTP Player Window)

  • RTP Player can play many streams in row
  • UI is more responsive
  • RTP Player maintains playlist, other tools can add/remove streams to it
  • Every stream can be muted or routed to L/R channel for replay
  • Save audio is moved from RTP Analysis to RTP Player. RTP Player saves what was played. RTP Player can save in multichannel .au or .wav.
  • RTP Player added to menu Telephony>RTP>RTP Player

Second: VoIP dialogs (VoIP Calls, RTP Streams, RTP Analysis, RTP Player, SIP Flows) are non-modal, can stay opened on background.  This also means the same tools are provided across all dialogs (Prepare Filter, Analyze, RTP Player …​)

Lastly, follow stream is now able to follow SIP calls based on their Call-ID value.

These are all very positive changes and I thank the development team at Wireshark for sprucing up the voice support!  Also - be sure to grab the voice profiles as mentioned in the video.  You can find those right here:
