gstreamer or rosbridge?

I'm experimenting with ROS on an iPad. I want to send images (currently trying ROS compressed images), captured by the iPad, to my computer. What is the best way of doing this? I've experimented with rosbridge but I'm not able to get a steady frame rate.

This would be important for my application so it's very important to get my images on time (or not at all).

Should I continue trying to fix my issues with rosbridge or should I rather try to avoid ros for streaming and use something like GStreamer? Or is there something else I haven't found yet which can help my case?

Thanks in advance!

Rosbridge is for json data, not video. With gstreamer you can use a hardware encoder on some platforms, so I vote for gst. Its made for video streams.
