Nowadays video is a common form of content that many users want to consume on the Internet.

Usually, video files are large. When users want to pause watching a video they need to resume the video watching later in the position where they paused.

Streaming content helps the browsers play video instantaneously without having to wait for the video to be completely downloaded.

Nowadays video players are smart and retrieve smaller chunks of video files at any time.

This PHP utility package can serve files for streaming starting the stream download in any position upon the request of the browser or application video player.
