Playing sound or video in real time as it is downloaded over the internet as opposed to storing it in a local file first. Avoids download delay.
A low-bit-rate encoding format intended for use over networks and the Internet. Streaming files match the encoded bit rate to the connection speed of the user, so the remote viewer can play audio or video with minimal stoppage without first downloading the entire video file.
