Streaming media

Streaming is a technique in which you can listen to and watch digital audio and video through the network.  Audio and video are sent through the network to a PC and played directly whilst the rest of the file is underway. Files are not stored on the PC’s hard disc, which is advantageous because most video files are extremely large. Waiting times are also greatly reduced.
