Professional media players, media servers and streaming servers

Media players are computer programs that read in data from various sources, decode it, and then pass it on to an output unit as uncompressed digital data. The control and interface or operation is often very different; in many products, various filters can also be interposed, which have access to the uncompressed signal and can perform various operations on it. Many players also offer the possibility of organizing multimedia content.
