Streaming is a technique for transferring data such that it can be processed as a steady and continuous stream. Streaming video is a term applied to the compression and buffering techniques that allow one to transmit and view video in real-time through the
Internet. In other words, streaming media is the simultaneous transfer of digital media files such as video, audio, and data through a server application that can be displayed in real-time by client applications. Once a streamed file has been downloaded and viewed, the physical file is no longer present on the user’s computer or Mobile Devices.
