For a long time, streaming audio and streaming video could only be found on large corporate websites. These sites required high-dollar specialists to create these tantalizing web-based multimedia presentations. The tools that these specialists have used in the past are now increasingly affordable for the general public--in many cases, free of charge-- making it possible for any web designer to create and add the very same spice of audio and video to their web creations on any scale, corporate or personal or anything in between. The possibilities of where you can use these are endless!
Unfortunately, many of the media hosting services out there are still geared toward the high-end corporate user--offering their services at high-end corporate pricing.
