This option was replaced in v1.99.8rc0-454-g21e5a95 by new rtp_udp and rtp_stun protocols. You can enable these at Analyze -> Enabled Protocols. Then search for rtp and check these options.

Lekensteyn: can you tell me how to enable "rtp_udp" in tshark? Something like "-o rtp_udp.enable:True"?

@oposum Try tshark --enable-heuristic rtp_udp (see man tshark).
