How Streaming Works
Streaming means listening to music or watching video in ‘real time’, instead of downloading a file to your computer and watching it later. As broadband availability has increased and compression standards have become more efficient, streaming has become a hugely popular way to publish high-quality live and on-demand video.
A Typical Streaming Media Workflow
Below we will illustrate the three main parts of the streaming workflow:
Live video capture from an encoder or network-ready camera to a sever
Packaging and streaming the compressed video with Vidict Media Server
Display and consumption of the video trough a third-party player
