I don't really know the specifics of your work but I'd guess that the
media package in general and transform in particular are those that
would be most affected.

You don't need to make changes to the code of JMF. That's the purpose of
the RTPConnector interface. It allows you to intercept and modify all
data before it gets to the network.

Well they are actually on by default but this doesn't really matter in
your case. I only mentioned SRTP/ZRTP as code that you could use for

Yes. You'd need to:

1) modify the transform connector so that it stops doing SRTP and add
your modification code in it.
2) also modify CallSessionImpl and make sure that it always uses the the
connector and not an RTPManager.

I meant that you won't be modifying packets. That is, you are not going
to change their content but only delay them or drop them. You can use
the transform connector to do this.
