Live Video Stream

I am kind of new to the URCap API. I successfully went through the tutorial videos which help a lot but it did not answer all of my questions. I am planing on creating a URCap, that allows for a communication with an external pc to transmit big Data as well as a live video stream. Do u have any suggestions on how to best do this? Maybe u have a tutorial or test program, which would help me out? Any helpt is much appreciated.

What kind of live video do you like to stream? i think you can clone the Polyscope UI using the display port on the e-Series. There is also a way to use Polyscope with a Remote Desktop connection. If you like to send a Data Stream from an external camera and control it with a urcap i would suggest to use sth. like the jffmpeg library. If there is any robot data you want to send, check out the RTDE Guide.
