I have video and associated data with it such as the time it was recorded embedded by an application into data files (not a video file such as .avi). Multiple clients would have the same application running and would want to retrieve the data file/s they need. The clients could request same or different files. What is the best way to implement this setup?
The approach I have in mind is to have all the data stored on a network drive and possibly implement a solution for reliable data transfer with the least amount of delay (with RTP perhaps?).
My understanding is that RTP is for video/audio type media files only and not data files?
What is the best way to implement this setup? preferably using c++ and qt.
