Haivision has had a transport protocol they've been using in their appliances that in my personal experience using it, offers a lot of advantages for point-to-point streams when compared to UDP protocols.

They announced that in collaboration with Wowza they have open-sourced the protocol. Although it probably need vetting, it looks like a very genuine effort at standardization since they have released reference code (C++) under LGPL-2.1.

I would hope ffmpeg could integrate it in the near future as this provides much needed functionality in the area of streaming transport protocols.
