About Podcasts and Videostreaming


Podcasts are video or audio files you can download to your iPod, computer, or other device. Many Colorín Colorado programs are available for download as either a video or audio podcast. Please note that a 20-minute video clip is about a 46MB file — this will take awhile to download, even if you have a broadband connection.

Colorín Colorado podcasts are available from the following:


Many people want to watch a program online without downloading it. This is called videostreaming. The advantage of videostreaming is that it's very quick — the video plays immediately on your computer. The quality of videostreaming is not as good as podcast downloads, however, and you can't save the file for later viewing or put the file on a portable media device.

Videostreaming links are provided throughout the Colorín Colorado web site so you can watch online. The video will appear in Windows Media Player which most PC computers already have installed. Macintosh users can download the free Flip4Mac playback file, which allows you to play Windows Media files in your QuickTime player.
