Streaming video

This is a delivery method where video can be presented online before the entire file has been received. Without streaming, you would have to wait a while to download an entire two-hour video before you could begin to view it. The technology also makes it harder for people to illegally download media. YouTube, Hulu, and Netflix all use streaming video.

The Hesburgh Libraries’ electronic reserves service can provide private, securely streamed videos that students can view outside of class – all within the limitations of fair use. You can also use the Media Gallery tool in Sakai to upload your own original materials for restricted use by students.
