What is a video?
Video means pictures or images in motion. It is an electronic technology that processes, transmits, records, saves and rebuilds a series of still images that eventually appear like moving scenes and pictures. This technology was invented as it was required for televisions. But since that day, it has traveled miles. After television, they were used in video players to play movies or songs. They were used to make and view personal recordings. Today they can be viewed on computer monitors via the internet as recorded and uploaded clips.
