What does streaming mean?
This is a method of transmitting or receiving data(especially video and audio material)over a computer as a steady, continuous flow, allowing playback to start while the rest of the data is still being received.
How does streaming work?
Just like other data that's sent over the internet, audio and video,data is broken down into data packets.Each packet contains a small piece of the file,and an audio or video player in the browser on the client's device which take the flow of data packets and interprets them as video or audio
What is live streaming?
Live streaming is the process of transmitting video content to viewers as it is being filmed in real-time. Live-streamed video is carried to its intended audiences through an array of streaming devices that are connected to the internet. Since video files are large, this requires powerful, dedicated technology.
Difference between streaming and downloading
Streaming is real-time, and it's more efficient than downloading media files. If a video file is downloaded, a copy of the entire file is saved onto a device's hard drive, and the video cannot play until the entire file finishes downloading. If it's streamed instead, the browser plays the video without actually copying and saving it. The video loads a little bit at a time instead of the entire file loading at once, and the information that the browser loads is not saved locally.
