Clarify initial seq_num and rtp timestamp values
The initial Sequence Number and RTP Timestamp values to use in the RTP Audio packets can be specified in the RECORD RTSP request, this wasn't explicit through the spec, clarify that.

Both are updated when sending audio packets. Audio data is encapsulated in
RTP packets which are sent sent as UDP packets to the audio port.
