Video streaming is the one-way transmission of video content over a data network. It is a type of media streaming in which data from a video file is continuously transferred through the Internet to a remote user. This content is sent in a compressed form via the Internet and is displayed in real time by the viewer. While streaming, the user does not have to wait to download it on a computer or host it to play the file. Hence, a player is needed for uncompressing the file, which sends the audio data to the speakers and the video data to the display.
