What is streaming video?
Streaming video is content sent in compressed form over the Internet and displayed to the viewer in real time. With streaming video, a user does not have to wait to download a file to play it. Instead, the media is sent in a continuous stream of data and is played as it arrives. The user needs a player, which is a special program that encompasses and sends video data to the display and audio data to speakers. A player can be either an integral part of a browser or downloaded from the software maker's website.

The streaming video service was added at a very low cost to the City to help with community outreach to all Xenia residents and website visitors that do not subscribe to Time Warner Cable or other future cable systems (does not include satellite dish providers) but subscribe to High Speed Internet connections (Broadband).
