A method used to deliver audio and video content in real time so that the person using the system can interact with the data stream.
   A client downloads a portion of the audio/video file, decompresses it, and starts to view the video clip before the rest of the file arrives. Data is built up in a buffer before the playback begins, and the next part of the file is downloaded as the first part plays.
   See also IP multicast; multicasting.
