Broadcasting as we think about it today provides for the transportation of direct audio and video shows in real time. The standard premise of the broadcasting design has not changed in more than 70 years. We switch on our TVs and radios at specific minutes in time to gain access to one program at a time per channel with prescheduled start and end times. We expect radio programming to be audio and television programs to be video. Aside from the capability to manage whether the receivers are on or off and frequency tuning, we have no expectations of impacting what exists to us on our speakers and screens. Practically all of the material provided by radio and TELEVISION stations today is offered only in this manner.


Broadcast media transmit info digitally via media such as movies, radio, taped music, or television. Digital media makes up both Internet and mobile mass communication. Web media comprise such services as email, social networks websites, websites, and Internet-based radio and tv. Streaming is a term often utilized to specify the display of video and audio media in real time. Essentially, there are 2 kinds of streaming.

The "real" streaming requires a special service which transmits the audio/video details in real time. The player on the visitor's computer analyzes this stream of data and imagines it instantly. Such innovation requires powerful dedicated servers due to the fact that it requires a lot of resources to run properly. You require such server if you want to broadcast live video for example.

The majority of the streaming server innovations record, encode and relay your videos in real time making them suitable for sites of TELEVISION stations, live programs, or sites like or that have millions of visitors playing and submitting videos.

The HTTP streaming or the "pseudo streaming" is a ideal workaround for individuals who do not wish to invest a great deal of resources and cash on pricey broadcasting servers. The result of live streaming is achieved by buffering part of the downloaded video file and playing it while the remainder of the file is still being downloaded.

In this case the TCP procedure is utilized. Although TCP is safe (there are a great deal of checks for packet loss in this procedure), it is not suitable for video streaming in which the loss of data is normal and expected. Modern Flash, QuickTime and RealMedia players integrated with a quick server, however, manage to play such videos without many issues and to decrease the buffering time.

If you want to allow your visitors to play simple videos on your site, you do not need a genuine streaming server. The very same result can be attained with pseudo streaming. The most typical use of this streaming method is to show flash films which are small in size and fast to download and play. If you wish to show live shows on your site or to stream long videos, you require a genuine streaming server. Keep in mind that such servers create massive bandwidth and a great deal of I/O load on your server.
