Since the introduction of H.261 video coding standard in 1988, media streaming has attracted tremendous attention of the scientific community, and has been constantly evolving ever since. In the 90’s of the past millennium, media steaming started as HTTP progressive download, but by the end of the decade there were already dedicated media streaming servers based on the Macromedia Flash player and RTMP protocol. In the first decade of the 21-st century we witnessed the emergence of media streaming platforms such as YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, while the second decade marked the return of HTTP media streaming with the rise of streaming protocols for dynamic adaptive streaming over HTTP such as Apple’s HLS, Microsoft’s Smooth Streaming, Adobe’s HDS and MPEG’s DASH. Furthermore, this decade marked the introduction of Media Source Extensions, Encrypted Media Extensions, WebRTC and some other technologies that revolutionized media delivery over streaming networks. On the verge of the third decade of this century some novel trends are on the rise. In this paper, we elaborate the current technologies and recent advances in media streaming and we conclude the paper with emerging trends in media delivery over streaming networks.
