What is Streaming Video?

Streaming video is a one-way video transmission over a data network  (nternet) to computer desktops, tablets, and smartphones.  A streamed movie is played as soon as a small amount of video data is received.  The movie/film is stored on a remote host server. This allows multiple users to view the same video simultaneously from different locations. 

- based on PCMag.com and ODLIS-Online Dictionary of Library and Information Science

"Films On Demand is a web-based digital video delivery platform that allows you to view streaming videos from Films Media Group anytime, anywhere, 24/7!  Thousands of videos are available for in-class use and remote viewing from the library... or at home. Our high-quality streaming videos can be accessed by librarians, faculty, and students through online card catalogs, learning management systems, and distance learning courses. And special features built into the platform allow users the ability to organize and bookmark clips, share playlists, store quick links to favorite videos, and manage their entire collection through an administrative reporting system."
