with -d 4 you have only SIP headers, with wireshark you have everything.

I got some SIP and UDP packet information; I am currently attempting to do live testing on Ekiga (user-to-user videoconferencing) and trying to obtain the timestamps on RTP packets so I can observe the delay/jitter of one packet from source to dest. Is there a way to obtain this information from an ekiga debug log or some kind of udp packet analyzer?
