i captured some udp packets while streaming my webcam in order to reassemble them to a video. Unfortunately i even don't know the type of that video stream. Wireshark is just defining the packets as UDP and no hint concerning RTP or any other streaming format. How can i proceed with my analysis, without knowing the type?
I followed the UDP Stream with my src ip and extracted it to a raw File. Mystream.raw
What would be the next steps? Thank you.

Well, that's a problem and the vendor of that webcam may well use it's own encoding. There might also be some form of encryption/data scrambling in place to prevent others from intercepting and viewing the video.
That looks like raw data. I tried to identify it with the file command on linux, and it also detects no known format.
So, either you extracted the wrong thing, not all data, or the data stream is in a proprietary format of that vendor.
Figure out what data format is used by that vendor, by contacting the vendor support.
BTW: If you are able to post a capture file (on google docs, dropbox, etc.) of a whole video streaming session, someone here might be able to help. BEWARE the privacy issues in doing so!
