Internet Video Streaming As a Better Way to Consume Media

September 28, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 81

The internet is loaded with videos and information, so it's little wonder that consumers and students rely on the internet for most information they need to know. With sites like YouTube leading the charge for videos, it's now easier than ever to get information by viewing videos or other forms of media online. There are two ways to view media via the internet. Firstly, you can view media through downloading the content from scratch, and secondly you can view the media through internet video streaming. For many internet users, the most popular way of viewing content is through downloading.

Under this arrangement, the user must first download the entire file and save it to a computer, this can then be viewed at a later time once the videos have been completely downloaded. The good thing about this procedure is that one can easily access and view the videos or content at any time once the contents have been downloaded. But this system relies on waiting for the whole file to be downloaded first before viewing the file is possible. While this may be fine for small files that can be downloaded in seconds, the problem lies with bigger files that can take minutes or even hours to download. Content providers can deliver the videos in two ways as well, one is to use a hyperlink and the other is to embed the file using an HTML code.

The second way of consuming media and videos online is through internet video streaming. This is the most cost-effective way to experience online videos since you can start watching the file as soon as the download begins. The file is sent at a 'continuous stream', and there's no waiting involved, this option provides greater benefits for businesses in that it allows companies, businesses and publishers to stream live events or presentations. Live streaming of product presentations or training can be broadcast on a local or global level and provide a professional and interactive way of showcasing your business. To fully take advantage of this technology, the video or live stream should be made using a specialized streaming server.

Progressive downloading is a combination of the two above technologies. Progressive downloading allows you to view the file as soon as a portion of the file has been received. This option and internet video streaming are your true streaming technologies that will benefit any publisher or business owner. Adopting these technologies can be difficult but with proper guidance, internet video streaming can be tapped to promote any business.
