RFC 2435:

This memo describes the RTP payload format for JPEG video streams. The packet format is optimized for real-time video streams where codec parameters change rarely from frame to frame.

The Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) standard [ISO DIS 10918-1. Digital Compression and Coding of Continuous- tone Still Images (JPEG), CCITT Recommendation T.81.][William B. Pennebaker, Joan L. Mitchell, JPEG: Still Image Data Compression Standard, Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1993.][Gregory K. Wallace, The JPEG Sill Picture Compression Standard, Communications of the ACM, April 1991, Vol 34, No. 1, pp. 31-44.] defines a family of compression algorithms for continuous-tone, still images. This still image compression standard can be applied to video by compressing each frame of video as an independent still image and transmitting them in series. Video coded in this fashion is often called Motion-JPEG.
