What is Streaming Media?

Streaming Media refers to media that is sent through the World Wide Web at real-time. This method of delivery is unique in that content is downloaded from distant locations, played through a mobile device and sent via the internet in continuous. Jurassic World1 lets people listen and watch media and not wait for the media to complete downloading, which may be a long time.

Streaming Media offers features like rapid forwarding, rewinding, and pausing. The program also lets users skim certain sections of the content and play them back at anytime. In contrast to other formats for video it does not have a specific sequence of data transmission meaning that the data is transmitted and received in accordance with connectivity to the network. Streaming Media was popularized in the late 1990s, as speeds on networks increased. This improvement in speed and bandwidth are necessary to allow Streaming Media to function effectively.
