True Streaming, Adaptive Streaming and Progressive Downloads.
Welcome to episode #85 of the SubscribeMe show from SubscribeMe.fm.
I’m your host Ravi Jayagopal. This is the podcast to listen to, to learn about creating membership sites & online courses, making, marketing and monetizing digital content, WordPress, eCommerce, digital marketing, and tools, techniques and tips that you can use to create a long term, profitable online business.
I am the co-founder & co-developer of DigitalAccessPass.com, a premier membership plugin for WordPress, fondly known as DAP.
So what does it really mean to stream audio or video?
Is downloading a file the same as streaming?
Does every video you watch online a streaming video?
The 3 types of “streaming” (Progressive Downloads, Adaptive & True Streaming), why one of them is not even actual streaming, what you should know about, why you should care, and the way it impacts how you deliver content to your audience.
That’s what I talk about on this episode.
I’m not going to go too deep into this, because you and I, we don’t need to exactly become audio or video engineers. But I know enough to be really dangerous, enough to create an incredible plugin at S3MediaVault.com. And I’m going to boil it down to some simple concepts and examples so you too know just enough to come across as a well-informed person at your next technical conversation at a party of geeks and nerds.
But seriously, the more important thing is that I want you to be able to make an informed decision when it comes to the media that you’re creating and and how you’re delivering it to your website visitors, subscribers and paid and free members.
Also, shout out to this awesome article 7 Best Amazon S3 And Cloudfront Plugin For WordPress 2019 which lists S3MediaVault.com among the best solutions for creating a S3 Video Player.
