Hello, my name is Josiah Rea. I'm going to talk briefly about the differences between uploading and downloading. Uploading and downloading refers mostly to transferring data over the Internet. And so I'm going to show you what it looks like when you download something and when you actually upload something to the Internet. So here I am, I'm going to log into my email, josiah@jreastudios.com and when I push the log in button what happens is their computers send all the information that I need to my computer to display this page. And that's me downloading data from them. The downloading and the uploading refers to what's happening to your computer. So because information's coming into it I'm pulling it down from the Internet. So, I've got an email here from myself. And I can reply to this real quick. And when I push send that actually takes data from my computer and pushes it up to their server so I'm uploading information now. So that's briefly the differences between uploading and downloading. It works the same way when you watch a movie. If you're watching something like t.v. online you're pulling information down so you're downloading. If you put a movie onto YouTube you're pushing it up to their servers. I hope you've enjoyed this short video. I’m Josiah Rea.
