Streaming is an Internet data transfer technique that allows users to see a video or hear audio files without lengthy download times. Also known as "streaming media," streaming is the live flow of digital information that begins to play back as quickly as possible. A host streams small packets of information over the Internet to the user, who accesses the content as it is received. Users need a player or plugin in order to hear or view the streaming media.
(n.) A flow of a single type of data. (v.) To send a media clip over a network so that it begins playing back as quickly as possible.
a steady current in a body of water
Small river, brook. Any steady flow of water or other fluid.
To send a media clip over a network so that it begins playing back as quickly as possible. . A flow of a single type of data, measured in Kilobits per second (Kbps). A RealVideo clip's soundtrack is one stream, for example.
(also arroyo, barranca, creek) small natural waterway originating from underground springs, snow melt, runoff, or other natural sources which drains to lakes, rivers, channels or oceans.
a body of flowing fresh water.
any body of running water moving under gravity flow through clearly defined natural channels to progressively lower levels.
By MDNR definition; "a river, creek, or surface waterway that may or may not be defined by Act 40, P.A. Of 1956: has definite banks, a bed, and visible evidence of continued flow or continued occurrence of water, including the connecting water of the Great Lakes".
A watercourse that: (1) has an ordinary high-water mark, (2) has bed and banks, (3) flows at least periodically, (4) has an easily identifiable beginning and end, (5) does not lose its character as a watercourse even though it may break up and disappear temporarily and reappear downstream.
A general term for a body of flowing water. In hydrology , the term is generally applied to the water flowing in a natural channel as distinct from a canal. More generally, it is applied to the water flowing in any channel, natural or artificial. Some types of streams are: 1. Ephemeral: A stream which flows only in direct response to precipitation , and whose channel is at all times above the water table . 2. Intermittent or seasonal: A stream which flows only at certain times of the year when it receives water from spring (s) or rainfall , or from surface sources such as melting snow. 3. Perennial: A stream which flows continuously. 4. Gaining: A stream or reach of a stream that receives water from the zone of saturation . 5. Insulated: A stream or reach of a stream that neither contributes water to the zone of saturation nor receives water from it.
A body of water found on the Earth's surface and confined to a narrow topographic depression, down which it flows and transports rock particles, sediment, and dissolved particles. Rivers, creeks, brooks, and runs are all Stream
Any hydrocarbon flow. Some uses of this general term include: the product emerging from a processing unit (e.g., the naphtha stream from a crude still), the supply of a raw material or product (e.g., the natural gasoline stream from West Texas), and various vague or specific movements (e.g., an ethylene plant's feedstock stream). The term also applies to engaging in processing or moving oil (e.g., on-stream and stream-days).
A ribbon of water that flows in a channel.

A body of water with a detectable current and confined within a bed. (Also referred to as a brook or creek).
a body of running water.
Water flowing in a channel or conduit, ranging in size from small creeks to large rivers.
linear body of water flowing on the Earth's surface (anabranch, awawa, bayou, branch, brook, creek, distributary, fork, kill, pup, rio, river, run, slough).
noun. A flow of a single type of data, measured in Kilobits per second (Kbps). RealVideo clip's soundtrack is one stream, for example. verb. To send a media clip over a network so that it begins playing back as quickly as possible.
a general term for a body of flowing water; natural water course containing water at least part of the year. In hydrology, it is generally applied to the water flowing in a natural channel as distinct from a canal.
A flow of data, or a channel of communication. All fundamental I/O in Java is based on streams.
Refers to the way data is delivered. Data is often said to flow in a stream.
A continuous flow of data, usually digitally encoded, designed to be processed sequentially. Also called a bitstream.
A body of water running or flowing on the earth's surface, or channel in which such flow occurs. Flow may be seasonally intermittent.
A body of water that may range in size from a large river to a small rill flowing in a channel. By extension, the term is sometimes applied to a natural channel or drainage course formed by flowing water whether it is occupied by water or not.
Body of water flowing in a channel; may be classified in relation to flow frequency: Ephemeral: Stream that only flows water during storm-period events and whose channel is above the water table at all times. Intermittent: Stream that flows water between 1 and 3 seasons per year, or one that flows water over most of its course. Perennial: Stream that flows water continuously. Streams may also be classified in relation to groundwater: Insulated: Stream that neither contributes to nor receives water from the zone of saturation because it is separated by an impermeable layer. Gaining: Stream that receives water from the zone of saturation (effluent seepage or bank storage). Losing: Stream that contributes water to the zone of saturation (influent seepage or bank storage). Perched: Either a losing stream or insulated stream that is separated from the underlying groundwater by a zone of aeration.
Body of water moving under the influence of gravity, to lower levels, in a well-defined natural channel.
Any body of flowing water or other fluid, great or small.
Digital media that is in the process of being delivered in a continuous flow across a network.
Any body of running water that moves downslope under the influence of gravity in a defined channel on Earth's surface.
A stream, brook, beck, burn or creek, is a body of water with a detectable current, confined within a bed and banks. Stream is also an umbrella term used in the scientific community for all flowing natural waters, regardless of size. The study of streams and waterways in general is known as surface hydrology and is important in environmental geography or environmental geology.
