Meanwhile tested RTP protocol which provides timestamps and allows JPEG
tranport. Apart from the fact that it requires additional JPEG specific
headers that I'm not able to provide at the moment, the protocol sets
aside only a single byte for the frame width. The value must be
multiplied by 8, so the maximum value is 255 * 8 = 2040. But my frames
are 2560 in width. :-/ So, RTP is not an option, too.
