I've no idea, especially if you want to do that on the fly. In that  
case you'd probably need some kind of DVB APIs.

As for captures, a viable (if overly complex) way could be replaying  
the captured traffic as if it was normal network traffic and use a  
RTP-enabled software (VLC?) to decode it. Tools like rtpdump/rtpplay  
(http://www.cs.columbia.edu/IRT/software/rtptools/) might be helpful  
(or again, they might not). Have a look at http://www.ethereal.com/ 
lists/ethereal-users/200401/msg00264.html as well if you're interested.

Another idea is to simply dump the RTP payload to a file (I don't  
known if wireshark does any tracking/reassembly for RTP, it can do  
that for TCP stream though) and see anything useful can be done with it.

Sorry, I hope there are more experienced people on the list that can  
help you better than me.
