the video feed sends a signal to the computer on it's own, its independent of the chassis control. The wifi module on the robot is what receives the data when you are using the web browser or whatever to control it. Once the module gets the stream of data it passes it to the micro controller(your chip is already programmed and knows what to do, so if data 10101011111 comes in it will go forward. It will recognize those commands). Once the micro controller gets the stream of data and knows what to do with it, its passed on further the chain of command such as the motor controllers and h bridges that tell the motors and other peripherals what to do.
