7. Distribute > Encode a Video to Stream on the Internet

Encode a Video to Stream on the Internet

Video files tend to be quite large, even when compressed, and can take a long time to download. By streaming a video, your viewers can get near-instant satisfaction.

The Internet is a great way to distribute your video. Cable modems, satellite dishes, and digital subscriber lines (DSL) have all brought broadband Internet connections to the people who want them. But even with a broadband connection to the Internet, downloading large files can still be a time-consuming process. Video files of any decent length, even when compressed, are much larger than even graphics-intensive web pages.

To overcome the hurdle of time-consuming downloads for video, various companies and organizations created methods to send video files in small pieces. These small pieces can be displayed immediately. The process of sending the pieces is called streaming video.
