Streaming Media


Streaming Media is a process in which an end user constantly receives and views media such as video, audio or real time text from a source via a constant server to client data stream. On demand media streaming implies viewing pre-recorded material stored on a server. Users have the option of pausing, replaying and seeking through media files.

Live streaming allows users access to a live webcast / broadcast. Users have the option of seeking, pausing or replaying the media only if the media is buffered and stored on a local machine.
