What is the definition of buffering?

2 Answers

A streaming device normally accepts data from the network faster than it displays it, placing the excess in a memory buffer. If data doesn't arrive in time, the buffer gets empty, the device has nothing to display and gives the "buffering indicator" while waiting on the buffer to refill.

Buffering is process of preloading data into a reserved memory called a buffer, example, it may load 20 percent of data into a buffer and then begin to play
