During the last few years there have been millions of videos uploaded on the Internet. In the beginning, most people were viewing videos by first downloading them to their computer and later playing them using a multimedia program. These days most videos are viewed by streaming. The reason that streaming became so popular is that it allows people to watch videos without completely downloading them. They can start watching them as soon as they click on the play button. There is no more waiting to download a large file before you can see what the video is about.
