The demand for delivering
video over the World Wide Web is increasing
dramatically. One important aspect in this endeavor is
to provide realistic expectations. Web video is not TV
quality. Bandwidth limitations often make creating
quality desktop video a challenge. Tradeoffs will have
to be made between file size, image quality, frame rate,
and audio quality. Compression affects the look of the
video at a given bandwidth.
Streaming media is live
and/or archived audio or video content, delivered in
almost real-time to an end user's computer via the
Internet. It's also called video-on-demand. For
large files, streaming is preferable to downloading
because you do not have to wait for the file to download
before viewing it.
Downloading a video file
can greatly increase the amount of time it takes to view
a presentation. In addition,many computers do not have
the storage capacity to store a long presentation.
|Streamed presentations are experienced as they
are downloaded, and generally not stored on the clients system.
Viewers do not need to wait for the entire file to download to
experience it. Further, it allows the consumer to jump forward or
backward to the section of the content of interest.

the developer, managing these versions and their associated
discrepancies are challenging, and limiting, as features differ
version to version. Flash Player
eliminates these development challenges with its hallmark
ability to consistently support all platforms that your
customers currently use. Flash experiences run on Windows
(every version from Windows 95/98/ME to Windows 2000 and XP),
Mac OS (9.x and OS X), and Linux. It also works across multiple
browsers including the popular Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and
Internet Explorer. With the increasing popularity of
sophisticated mobile phones and PDAs, Flash has authoring and
test tools to deploy on the Symbian operating system so that
rich content can be viewed on millions of mobile devices.
