Send texture from unity to flash via sockets.

For last project i was need show part of main display to distant big screen, connected to another PC. So i need somehow send video feed via Ethernet. Firstly i tried find any encoder lib for sending h264 video, but this was so complicated. So i did small Socket server in adobe air for this distant big screen PC and wrote some code in c# for unity client.

There is 2 ways for sending images to flash via sockets.

1. Send uncompressed bitmap data (ARGB = 4 bytes) from Unity and then use bitmapData.setPixels(rect, byteArray) for recteate bitmap
2. Convert bitmap data into PNG in Unity via Texture2D.EncodeToPNG and them use Loader.loadBytes() in flash.

some code below
