    I'm new to Cocoa programming (I do know c++)...

    How do I stream "video" images from a pc to iPhone?

    The source of the "video" could be...say...a video camera...that part is not important, I want to disconnect what the source is...

    For now, I just want to stream....say 10 "frames" of images from hd on pc to iPhone.

    Does anybody have an example of how to do this or what the best route to take to do this?

    Web Services, maybe? That is, set up a web server on your PC that will serve the images to a remote requestor.

    Open the Xcode documentation window. Type "streaming video" into the search box.

    I don't want to really stream video (ie from a video file or movie)...

    I want to agnostic out where the images come from, I want to stream images.

    Now the images MAY come from a video file, or a cam, or simply a bunch of images (frames) lying on hard drive.

    Yes....some kind of web server would have to be involved

    In other words I want to do something like this...

    <"video" / image source> ------> stream images to iPhone

    <video> ------> stream images to iPhone
    <pc cam> ------> stream images to iPhone
    <image folder> ------> stream images to iPhone

    I want to send a steady stream of images, not just upload a single image.
