Streaming Server

Jump to: navigation, search

A dedicated Web server or commonly referred to as a streaming server software in a Web server is the one that provides live or on-demand multimedia content to its customer devices.

Streaming servers naturally distribute files to you with a slight assistance from a Web server. Firstly, visit a web page, which is stored on the web server. When you click on the file that you want to use, the Web server directs a message to the streaming server, telling it about the file that you require. The streaming server sends the file directly to you, avoiding the Web server.

All of this data goes to the place, where it is required to go because of set procedures termed as protocols, which administer the method in which the data travels from one device to another.
