Dear, Mi Fans!
Today we're going to learn about what is the difference between in FM Radio & Online Streaming.

What is FM Radio?

FM broadcasting is a method of radio broadcasting using frequency modulation (FM) technology. Invented in 1933 by American engineer Edwin Armstrong, it is used worldwide to provide high-fidelity sound over broadcast radio. FM broadcasting is capable of better sound quality, the chief competing radio broadcasting technology, so it is used for most music broadcasts. FM radio stations use the VHF frequencies. The term "FM band" describes the frequency band in a given country which is dedicated to FM broadcasting.

Use of FM Radio:
FM is commonly used at Very high frequency (VHF) radio frequencies for high-fidelity broadcasts of music and news/ speech. Analog TV sound is also broadcast using FM. Angle modulation alters the instantaneous phase of the carrier wave to transmit a signal.

Online streaming video is content sent in compressed form over the Internet and displayed by the viewer in real time. With streamingvideo or streaming media, a Web user does not have to wait to download a file to play it.The server, information stream and decoder work together to let people watch live or prerecorded broadcasts. Instead, the media is sent in a continuous stream of data and is played as it arrives. Online streaming video and audio, the traveling information is a stream of data from a server.
