What is Streaming ? How does it work ?

What is streaming what does it have to do with my computer ?
that is a difficult question to answer streaming depending on the context can mean many things.
But for a General answer we will say streaming is a transmission of data.
A few examples would be video files from Netflix to your computer or Music files from Youtube to your phone This would be considered a downward stream as you are essentially downloading or streaming the information to your device..
one example of an upward stream would be a Gamer streaming content to twitch.tv they are uploading this stream from the local machine the game is being run on to a remote server over at twitch headquarters or where ever they keep there servers..
These are of course just a couple of example of what streaming is and how it works but hopeful you get the general idea.
