What is Video Streaming?


Video streaming is a widely used method of delivering video content from the Internet to computer desktops, tablets, smartphones and TVs. Streamed video plays almost immediately after the viewer hits the “play” button, although some content must buffer before streaming begins. Commonly used streaming frameworks include Windows Media, RealPlayer, QuickTime, and Flash.

Streamed content is especially suitable for academics. Videos can be embedded into Learning Management Systems (i.e., Canvas) to support online courses or to augment on-campus courses, and are available 24/7 from many different devices.

Use the links within the boxes below to access the licensed streaming video collections that the SJC Libraries subscribe to. Links to additional videos on the Internet can be found our Streaming Video Internet Sites page.

Streaming video is indented to supplement faculty course resources.
