I have captured rtp packets containing mp3 data. I would like to play them back. I have already tried several things but with no success (e.g saving payload as raw data).

I hope someone can help me finding a solution.

Thanks in advance.

You can't do that directly with Wireshark as the RTP player does not support MP3. You can try to use one of the following tools (both written in Perl) to extract the RTP data and the play it with your preferred MP3 player software, if the extraction creates a valid MP3 file !!
