Video conferencing - transferring image through socket

Hi,

I have captured the image from camera and i tried sending it to another machine through a socket - frame by frame.  I tried sending the frames as JPEG and PNG but the speed is not satisfactory.  Any other idea ???  Or if my idea itself is wrong pls tell me an alternate.

Well,
i know nothing on the subject but it would seem to me that the method you r using (individual frames as images) is very inefficient.
The whole point of mpeg is to only store the image transformations, not each individual frames. thus greatly decreasing the resultant file size.
From this, i would suggest encodeing in mpeg and sending this as a stream using udp.

Just my 2 p
