Formats

In the context of this book, a format is the technology used to encode and stream audio over the Internet. The four major formats include MP3, Windows Media, RealMedia, and QuickTime, although other lesser known formats also exist. Anyone with suitable audio know-how, programming skill, and time can create a streaming audio format, and many have.

NOTE

A list of lesser-known formats such as Ogg Vorbis, Beatnik, Clipstream, and more is included in Chapter 12, “ Advanced Authoring Techniques.”
