What is the Difference Between Streaming Video, Live webcasting and Progressive Download?

January 6, 2015 12:06 am

4 karma points

To sum up the reasons you might want to use streaming, live broadcasting, or progressive download:

 

  • If your video project includes live coverage, you must use broadcasting, or live webcasting.
  • If bandwidth management, DRM and copy discouragement (e.g. preventing download) are paramount considerations, streaming video or token authentication is the way to go.
  • If bandwidth is not a paramount concern, you want users to be able to receive you media regardless of connection speed, and you don’t mind if users obtain the actual downloaded copies of your audio and video content on their computers and portable devices, progressive download may be viable.
