Destreaming - definition(s)

destreaming - Destreaming, in a multimedia context, is the practice of saving streamed data as a file.

There are a number of ways to save streamed data, including:

   * Using software programs called stream recorders or stream rippers that automate the process.
   * Going to the URL for the media and downloading it as a file (if media is streamed via HTTP request).
   * Capturing the stream through use of a packet sniffer or by implementing the media's associated protocol to request the data.
   * Recording the stream from your desktop, for example as a screencast.
