Why people rather stream for videos than downloading them?

http://snipurl.com/ncjkk
Well, first of all people rather stream for videos because it saves their time and effort in searching the video. For example, you can use youtube to search for music videos. All you need to do is just type in the name of the music video and it will stream to you. Where else downloading requires you to choose the perfect file and user, sometimes it could be slower than streaming.


Besides that, some people prefer to watch the movie once after that they will get bored of the movie. For example blockbuster movie, each time a new movie is made and people would want to watch the latest movie. Certain downloading software such as kazaa or limewire does'nt offer the latest movie.

Thirdly, the government prefer the people to stream rather than download. In a way is call 'pirated version' but the government allows user to stream for their favorite video.

Do you know that the government can check what you download through your ip address?

Todou.com Vs Youtube.com

http://snipurl.com/mfsq9

Tudou.com Vs Youtube.com. This 2 online media sites have been competing for many years. Tudou.com is more famous among the Asians yet Youtube.com is known around the world. The reason Youtube.com is more preferable because it has many different language for users to choose. On the other hand, Tudou.com is fully in Chinese wordings, therefore, it is limited to some users only.

T
he main reason why Tudou.com is more preferable in Asia is because the videos uploaded are longer duration compared to Youtube.com. For example, users may want to watch Chinese drama online, but the videos in Youtube.com are shorter. Therefore, it is very troublesome for users to open different parts of the videos to complete an episode.

Both these media sites required the same plug-in, which is the Adobe Flash Player. The speed of both these media sites are depending on the duration of the video and the speed of the user's Internet line.

Many users in China today prefer to watch dramas or TV news through Todou.com instead of watching from the TV. It is because they can watch it anything time they want and they may choose from the media site itself. No matter what, Youtube.com still holds the record for the most viewers online media site. On the other hand, Todou.com is the highest minutes watched per-day among all the online media sites because of the videos posted are all longer duratio

PPStream is a software that helps users to stream and view videos and clips online. This software can be downloaded from PPStream.tv. This software is unlike what we usually use to stream videos. PPStream stores the latest dramas, series, anime, news, sports and many more.
The main advantage of PPStream is that users may access to all videos without any payment or registration. Most of the online media sites require users to register for an account before using the facilities. PPStream do not need to register or pay any fees to watch all the videos.
Another advantage is that PPStream do not copyright problems and users cannot download the videos from PPStream. This may avoid users to download the videos and share to other people.
