Streaming media are multimedia that are constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. Its verb form, "to stream", refers to the process of delivering media in this manner; the term refers to the delivery method of the medium rather than the medium itself.
A client media player can begin playing the data (such as a movie) before the entire file has been transmitted. Distinguishing delivery method from the media distributed applies specifically to telecommunications networks, as most other delivery systems are either inherently streaming (e.g., radio, television) or inherently nonstreaming (e.g., books, video cassettes, audio CDs). For example, in the 1930s, elevator music was among the earliest popularly available streaming media; nowadays Internet television is a common form of streamed media. The term "streaming media" can apply to media other than video and audio such as live closed captioning, ticker tape, and real-time text, which are all considered "streaming text". The term "streaming" was first used in the early 1990s as a better description for video on demand on IP networks; at the time such video was usually referred to as "store and forward video", which was misleading nomenclature.
Live streaming, which refers to content delivered live over the Internet, requires a camera for the media, an encoder to digitize the content, a media publisher, and a content delivery network to distribute and deliver the content.

APPLE PAY HAS PROBLEMS WITH YOUR MONEY
As a result of an apparent glitch in Apple's newly-launched Apple Pay mobile payment system, the debit transactions of nearly 1,000 customers of Bank of America were mistakenly duplicated on the system.
A source familiar with the glitch has revealed on the condition of anonymity that the Apple Pay malfunction was seemingly rooted in a processing error which occurred between Bank of America and at least one payment network. The source also said that the glitch was fixed on Wednesday.
However, there has been no official disclosure from Bank of America with regard to the number of accounts affected by the issue or about the network on which the erroneous debit transactions were processed.
Nonetheless, extending an apology for the inconvenience which the Apple Pay system malfunction had caused to the Bank of America customers, Tara Burke - a spokeswoman for the Charlotte, N. C., bank - said that the bank is "correcting this issue immediately and all duplicates will be refunded."
Meanwhile, noting that Apple is "aware of a Bank of America issue impacting a very small number of Apple Pay users," Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller said: "They're working on a fix that will be available shortly and reversing any duplicate transactions."
