Why use RTP when I can use datagrams?

I'm working on a small voice-chat application over a LAN, I'm using sockets for that (TCP/IP), the prototype works fine.

If I complete the project before the deadline, I'll look into using datagram sockets for the program to work over the internet.

So how does the RTP fit into all this?
