Depending on the filesizes and the required latency you could send an
entire video as a message. Rabbit does not impose a limit on message
size, but your server must appropriately resourced to send very large
messages. Message with payloads in the hundreds of megabytes and
gigabyte range have successfully been tested.

Another option is to send messages at the natural frame size of your
video container format.
