What is required to play Streaming Media?
Streaming media can be played from any client computer with a streaming media player. The user needs a player, which is a special program that uncompresses and sends video data to the display and audio data to speakers. A player can be either an integral part of a browser or downloaded from the internet as there are many players available over the internet to play the streaming videos which are free.

Streaming media is transmitted by a server application and received and displayed in real-time by a client application called a media player. A media player can be either an integral part of a browser, a plug-in, a separate program, or a dedicated device. Frequently, video files come with embedded players. YouTube videos, for example, run in embedded Flash players.
Media is usually streamed from prerecorded files but can also be distributed as part of a live broadcast feed. In a live broadcast, the video signal is converted into a compressed digital signal and transmitted from a Web server as multicast, sending a single file to multiple users at the same time.
