Wireshark still provides a meaning to count individual HTTP packets and allows
to identify the type of each of them (Request, Response: 200 Ok...)

The patch included in that report proposes to implement the same mechanism for
the protocol RTSP. So, based on the source code made by Jean-Michel Fayard, the
menu gets a new item (Statistics -> RTSP -> Packet Counter).

Like HTTP, filter can be set and then the dialog windows shows the result of
the RTSP analysis:
