Definition: RealVideo

A streaming video technology for the Internet and intranets from RealNetworks. A browser equipped with a RealOne media player (formerly RealPlayer) or third-party RealVideo plug-in enables video broadcasts from RealVideo servers (RealServers) to be viewed on screen. The material can be statically stored in the server and viewed in full, or it can be an ongoing broadcast like that of TV. Plug-ins can be downloaded from RealNetworks' website. Server software is available for a variety of platforms. See RealAudio.
