 From the description it sounds like RTP or a variant allright.

You might be able to dissect the packet dump with ethereal/wireshark.  
I think it has an option to force the interpretation of a packet  
using a specific protocol dissector.

If I'm not mistaken there is no standard way to deduce the RTP  
payload from the payload type field in the header without external  
information (maybe coming from an ancillary RTCP stream), but you  
might be lucky and end up with something easy to understand.
