Designing a Website

Multimedia - Sound, Graphics, Video and Animation
Multimedia web pages include sound, graphics, video and animation.

Do keep in mind that the more audio and visual files you have on your website, the larger the amount of disk space and bandwidth allowance you need.

The use of streaming is most popular, it allows users to listen to radio online, watch a video or news online.

Streaming is done from the server where your website is hosted. Streaming sends the audio/visual file to the user without downloading the information not the user's computer - it does not allow the user to save the files on their computer.

If you want to allow your users to download and/or save the file on to their computer, you will need to upload the audio/visual file to your server and create a download link on your website.
