Thanks for the link.  Glive is really meant to be a simple but reliable example 
on how to set up a live video stream using RTP/RTCP and Gstreamer on the i.MX6.  
It shows how one can use the Gstreamer API in a C program to build and control 
the pipeline (albeit very basic control), and uses a simple TCP link to initiate 
the setup and teardown of the pipelines at both the server and client ends (as 
RTP/RTCP do need some amount of orderly setup in Gstreamer).

I agree that RTSP would be another good example as well, especially when using 
VLC as a client for example.
