Chapter 19. Audio on the Web > Streaming Audio

19.6. Streaming Audio

Since RealAudio came on the scene in 1994, there has been a stampede of competitors. As of this writing, RealNetworks continues to dominate the market due to the ubiquitous distribution of its player and its proven track record. However, some competitors offer niche products that may better suit your particular need.

There are many other streaming audio formats, some of which are targeted at optimizing voice-only sound samples. This area of technology is developing quickly, and companies come and go quickly. For a current list of contenders, you can check the plug-in list on Netscape's web site (http://www.netscape.com/comprod/products/navigator/version_2.0/plugins/audio-video.html ).
