I'm developing something similar to the AR.parrot iPhone app for those who seen it. What I want to do is to stream the camera from a iPhone including extra sensory data (totally 6 double values) to a computer over wifi. I'm writing both the sending and the receiving application so the format does not to follow any standards. 

So far I got a MJPEG encoded stream using a MKV container sending the camera frames from the phone to the computer. I'm now trying to figure out how the send the data. I've seen there are something called data streams (AVMEDIA_TYPE_DATA) but I haven't figured out how to use it and which containers that support them.
