From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      Playing sound or video in real time as
     it is downloaded over the Internet as opposed to storing it
     in a local file first.  A plug-in to a web browser such as
     Netscape Navigator decompresses and plays the data as it is
     transferred to your computer over the web.
     Streaming audio or video avoids the delay entailed in
     downloading an entire file and then playing it with a helper
     application.  Streaming requires a fast connection and a
     computer powerful enough to execute the decompression
     algorithm in real time.
