Well the Evalvid module that I am trying to port takes, as input, a text
representation of a video file which contains the video frame
type, size and the time interval at which the frame should be sent. I may
be overthinking this a little but implementing this in ndn would require
the sending of the video frame packet upon an interest request which is not
desirable for a time sensitive scenario such as video. I wanted the
consumer to simply request the video file to be streamed once and to
subsequently accept the video frame packets as they arrive at their
