i´m currently writing a paper on the topic Videostreaming and Video-on-Demand. For further examples later I wanted to take YouTube and Netflix as examples. But before I get to those examples I have write the basics about Videostreaming, which technologies are out there and how do they work. My professor gave me some tags I should look into like MPEG-4 and RTSP. After that I can get into the Video-on-Demand topic with YouTube and Netflix.
So my question now is, what else I can look into for technologies, even though I know a bit about Networks and PCs I don't know that much about the in-depths considering Videostreaming. I´m totally new to this, but interested!
Furthermore I need some kind of information how the VoD works considering YouTube and Netflix - the technology behind practically.
It would be awesome if some guys of you can give me some tips what I should look up/look into to get the right informations.
Eitherway thank you in advance for all answers!
