Download free streaming media primer here

Streaminglearningcenter.com is pleased to offer for free download a streaming media primer written by Jan Ozer.

The primer starts by defining commonly used streaming terms like bandwidth, streaming and data rate, and then explains universal encoding parameters like VBR and I, B and P-frames. Then it introduces readers to the big three codecs, H.264, VP6 and VC-1, and briefly compares and contrasts Flash and Silverlight. The primer finishes with a section on how to choose common encoding parameters like data rate and resolution.

The primer is an amalgam of materials already available on streaminglearningcenter.com, along with new content, in a compact, more convenient form for downloading, printing and sharing. The primer is freely downloadable and fully printable.
