Your question doesn't make much sense to me, sorry. UDP is supported using the standard Posix socket API, and I'm not sure how UDP could be an alternative to HTTP...

HTTP is implemented by TCP, not UDP. Nobody supports HTTP over UDP.

That does not make sense; UDP is packet-based (without guaranteed delivery or reordering prevention) so per definition not a stream. Can you expand a bit more on what you're actually trying to do? As in: can you describe the project you're trying to use this for, and why you think you need UDP instead of HTTP (or something else, like raw TCP sockets)?

1) Create a datagram socket
optional) Bind it to an interface, or call connect to set target address.
2) Call sendto over and over.

Now you are streaming datagram packets.
