That's a nice question, but impossible to answer in a few sentences. But doesn't Windows already have the means to access a file on a remote PC via shares and copying it? That's all the average user needs.

Of course, it's different for a programmer. He has to take courses and study books to accomplish what he wants.

Good question.

Part of my work involved surveillance DVRs and we push video across the LAN. But I fear that there are more considerations than "best" because there are other design factors.

My advice is to get it to work first. Some folk forget that a working version is worth far more than the best design.

Not really.

There are plenty of web articles and the longer you write code and design systems the better you get at this. Once in a while someone thinks it can be condensed into a paragraph. Not yet.

It's a big subject that if I would put together a curriculum should span the usual 4 years of college then a few more covering networks and video.

Please help me out ,honestly speaking i want to implement it as a project of mine, i have a thought of doing it in 3 to 4 months of which i m in a dilemma that it might not be enough if i start it from scratch i know languages like c,c++,c#,java and i saw some code which implemented the LAN chat messenger with the help of port addresses and i thought why not enhance it with a video chat feature but hearing various replies i m a bit confused of taking it or not Happy please suggest me whether to choose this as a project or not and i have a very short span for trying it out Confused

Why not learn as you go?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / January 27, 2013 2:10 AM PST

You have 3 or 4 months and it sounds like you need a partner to work with you on your project. You'll want one that has written code for at least a decade. Do you have such folk that will work with you?

i have a friend of same experience of about 2 years as me , my bro in law has 5 years in coding, i have heard there is a language called "racket" if i m not wrong is used in these networking and i cant afford to learn it now, must implement it in java . I must give it a clear shot and if any help is needed while coding i can ask you too so please tell me what to do next like an overview of things that might be needed, i m ready with eclipse and java concepts and about LAN i thought of a reference on java networking but there is a little topic discussed about LAN,do you know any references please do tell me

Second thought.

To do this in JAVA seems to counter what your goal was. Since you were looking for some "best" I think you would avoid all interpretive languages. writes "The main disadvantage of interpreting is a much slower speed of program execution compared to direct machine code execution on the host CPU. A technique used to improve performance is just-in-time compilation which converts frequently executed sequences of interpreted instruction to host machine code."

Since we might be talking about video or near real time work, your idea of using JAVA seems to run counter to your goals.
