Understanding Computers/WOTS IT MEAN


(This is not a spam question or a homework question)
I was wondering would you please explain to me in a simple way that I can understand: wot does it mean be “streaming”?


Hello Cameron:
Thanks for asking this question.

Stream by itself means flow or delivery of media or object from sender to receiver.
The following is how wikipedia defines it:
Streaming media is multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. The verb "to stream" refers to the process of delivering media in this manner; the term refers to the delivery method of the medium rather than the medium itself.

Nowadays, we see a lot talking about video streaming from website, not in video tape in traditional way.
As long as you know the site/url, then the receiver will constantly get the flow/delivery of media, such as news or updates or statistics.  Webcast is another example that you can get the live broadcasting of a certain events such as Olympic, wedding and inauguration service. Recently I was able to participate in the Family Engagement event that was taking place live in the Europe from US via Skype Webcam.

Hope this helps your understanding.
