Streaming Video
All videos on this site are diffused as real-time streams. The term "stream" is often misused to describe downloadable audiovisual content. Streaming consists in diffusing user requested content in real-time without any downloading. This has several advantages:
- The user can instantly view any section of a video without having to wait for it to be downloaded.
- Video quality is adapted to the user’s connection speed.
- We can offer users “virtual” videos based on selections from various different videos.
