Hi Folks,

New to Jabber so pardon me if this info has already been discussed ... but I'm looking for best practices in passing binary data (image, audio files, etc...) to a Jabber Chat/IM client I'm working on (so for example a user-defined .wav file can be downloaded and played on all machines in a chat room ... or perhaps the background of the chat client be replaced on each person's client app with a .jpg uploaded by another user).

Anyways, anyone know how to do this?  Or if there are a variety of ways ... best methods in terms of performance?

I'm building out my client app as a .NET Winform in C#.

Thanks - Wayde
