Media 123Movies streaming is a technology that has been significantly boosted by the limited bandwidth in the network, but which begins on the local device: At its core, the only thing that matters is that an audio or video file from the player (123Movies streaming client, renderer) is not fully loaded but arrives there in a constant flow of small data packets. This has the decisive advantage that playback can start immediately, even with the typically very large amounts of data. Videos from the web or videos on demand can not be realized in any other way with limited bandwidth. In addition, such online video streaming ensures, in practice (but not in principle), that the client device only receives some temporary data, but not the entire media object.

Up to now, the principle of media 123Movies streaming does not require any user knowledge: the devices or software players simply master it, and when streaming on the local network or on the web, only the hardware has to be suitable and enable the necessary throughput: For the 123Movies streaming bits with Blu-ray films, the requirements range from 3 to 30 Mbit/s. Audio streams only require stream packets in the kbit range and do not represent a hurdle anywhere.

In the network: UPnP / DLNA-compatible 123Movies streaming servers

Classic network releases are sufficient to stream media over the home network – at least as long as only intelligent devices such as PCs or tablets are involved as clients. However, shares at the file and folder level require access rights and passwords. UPnP/DLNA servers are easier to maintain at this point: All media are available without authentication since UPnP only allows playback, but no access at the file level (copy, change, delete). Another major advantage of a UPnP server is that clients such as smart TVs or AV receivers come into play, which cannot do anything with network sharing at file level. And a third advantage is the preparation of the media files in handy categories such as "title,” “album” or year of publication.
