Hi Vijay -
To a certain (practical) extent, you can. Many coders have voice activity detection front ends, and they could be used as a basis for an algorithm to determine if the uncompressed packets contain stuff that looks like voice. As I recall (and it's been a while since my DSP days), they tend to look at energy levels and sinusoidal components.
My question is, why do you care? If it doesn't have voice, then what's the big deal?

Is there any way to find out if the packets are genuine voice packets or
not. By looking into the Payload Type(PT) field of RTP packet, we can say if
its audio/video.. and the codec used. What if i could generate some packets
with that PT field showing it as audio packet while the payload contains
I would like to know if there is a way to find out if the packet really
contains voice or not.
