Internet-based streaming technology is changing the way in which we consume media. In the past, users would have to download media from a server to their computer or local device. To watch a video, for example, a user would typically download the video file to his or her computer or device. While downloading is still an option, streaming has become a popular alternative.

What is streaming exactly? Streaming involves the delivery of digital media over the internet in real time or near real time. It differs from downloading in the sense that users can watch or consume the digital media while it's being streamed. As a result, there's no need to download the entire file.
Streaming media requires the use of a high-speed internet connection. In the past, internet speeds were typically too slow to support high-quality streaming media. This has since changed, however, with the advent of broadband technologies like fiber optics.
