Multimedia

Sound, video, animation, and 3D interactive video are referred to as multimedia.

Some multimedia, called streaming media, plays as soon as you access a web page.

Others require that you download the multimedia file to your computer first.

Multimedia files often requires that your browser use a plug-in program.

Plug-Ins

Plug-ins are small software programs that extend the capabilities of your browser.

Plug-ins enable you to play sounds and video clips or do other functions, such as automatically decompressing files that you download.

Plug-ins may come with your browser software or can be downloaded from websites.

Some plug-ins enable streaming audio or video, which lets you hear or view a multimedia file before it has completely downloaded to your computer.
