Bible DictionaryInternet Glossary
A technique for transferring data such that it can be processed as a steady and continuous stream. Streaming technologies are becoming increasingly important with the growth of the Internet because most users do not have fast enough access to download large multimedia files quickly. With streaming, the client browser or plug-in can start displaying the data before the entire file has been transmitted. For streaming to work, the client side receiving the data must be able to collect the data and send it as a steady stream to the application that is processing the data and converting it to sound or pictures. This means that if the streaming client receives the data more quickly than required, it needs to save the excess data in a buffer. If the data doesn't come quickly enough, however, the presentation of the data will not be smooth. There are a number of competing streaming technologies emerging. For audio data on the Internet, the de facto standard is Progressive Network's RealAudio.
Bible DictionaryDictionary of Computer and Internet Terms
Data streaming, commonly used in the terms "audio streaming" or "video streaming," is when data moves from one computer to another and doesn't have to be completely downloaded for the receiving computer to do something with it. Most files, like updaters and games, that you download off the Internet are not streaming. However, multimedia files like Real Audio and QuickTime 4.0 documents can be streaming files, meaning you can watch a video or listen to a sound file while it's being downloaded to your computer. As Internet connection speeds get faster and faster, streaming media should become very popular.
