The present version send the image data to a remote computer for viewing the image captured by the module via Bluetooth module or USB-to-Serial converter.  Currently I am experimenting with using the popular ESP8266 to broadcast the image data to the remote computer via WiFi, using TCP or UDP protocols.  The ESP8266 will functions as a server, with a client software running on the PC.

Nov 2021: Finally have time to re-look into this project. I have create a firmware version that can support ESP8266. This allows MVM V1.5C to stream images to a remote computer via WiFi connectivity. Currently I am using TCP protocol, with ESP8266 configured as a TCP server, while the remote computer works as a TCP client. Updated the codes on GitHub.
