"Not much streaming media has to be streamed -- call-in radio, telephone calls, a few other things. (Except with the very cool Alluvium project, which leverages the real time nature of streams to make swarming more efficient). Streaming is usually used because of the mistaken belief that it is DRM, or out of inertia from the old days when lower bandwidth and worse software required dedicated algorithms to prevent skipping.
I don't believe that situation will last. Web technology is much more advanced, scalable, and cheaper. What we'll see instead if a split between downloadable MP3 on the public web and DRM-impaired Windows Media. The BBC and bloggers will go to downloadable MP3, MSNBC and Hollywood will go to DRM-damaged Windows Media, and Real will be left behind."
