Transferring Videos and Photos from Server to Mobile Application

I developed a mobile application based on Flutter. After the user logs in, I authenticate with a token for security. Then I convert the photos in the local folder on my windows server to base64 and send them to the user in the application. There is a delay when sending photos from the server to the app and this is a performance issue for me.

There are videos that only the users using the app need to see. Can I stream video from the same server with Base64?

Or can you explain the methods I can use to securely stream photos and videos using authentication without performance issues in the flutter mobile app?

Secure and performant video and photo transfer from windows server to mobile app.

    Hi. Thank you for your question and reaching out. I’d be more than happy to help you with your query.

    Try using a secure file transfer like SFT/FTPS. This will allow you to transfer your files securely. It also provides a great performance when using Base64 encoding. I also suggest you to use Cloudinary platform so it will store the media files securely.
