Hi madax,

You sh'ld start with src/celestia/imagecapture.cpp. It provides 2 methods: CaptureGLBufferToJPEG and CaptureGLBufferToPNG. Unfortunately they write to files only so you sh'ld implement methods writing to a memory buffer instead. Then add a simple UDP server sending content of those buffer to clients. You can make your job easier if instead of implementing new methods you'll use temporary files.
