1. My problem :

I need a way to exchange images, videos and audio with smartphones, tabletts and usual computers which reside on the same wlan-router.

2. My solutions :

All my solutions have in common that I used qr to generate a qr code which consists of the ip-adress and port on which to connect to plan9 running in qemu, 9vx or natively.

2.1. httpd

I designed a web page which uses <input type="file" ...> and XMLHttpRequest inside a script. This makes it possible to select files and transfer them to plan9. The solution works in chrome and firefox while safari sometimes causes problems due to the hard coded ip address.

2.2. ftpd

I started a ftp server on plan9 which can be used by ftp clients from mobile devices which have a client app installed and this also works. 

3. My question :

Do you have any other suggestions how to solve this problem without making it necessary to write apps for the mobile device by only relying on standard protocols. Does anybody have any ideas or experience ? Would websockets be a better solution ?

Thanks in advance.
