Multimedia is a combination of audio, video, text, animation and still images. Multimedia networking is popular, but not an easy task. There are many challenges which still exist while transmitting real time multimedia data in wireless environment. The aim of multimedia transport protocols is to transmit multimedia signals from one point to another point. Communication network connects these points employing specific protocols. Communication of Multimedia as opposed to traditional data oriented applications pose special challenges. Hence, in this paper a brief survey is done on the multimedia protocols and also on the real-time challenge of multimedia networking in the wireless network.
