Hi, Does anybody know how kinect data is processed in ROS. as i know it has a RGB Data and a Depth Data usually stored in a .xed file. Anybody knows how its processed in ROS??

If its split into 2 files or seperate streams etc?? Does OpenNi do it for ROS??

The ROS drivers simply interact with OpenNI by registering appropriate callbacks and receiving data from OpenNI through these callback functions. There are no .xed files, simply a callback for each stream of data (RGB stream + Depth Stream).
