Similar to Netflix, streaming video is the newer format and basically can be streamed to any device whether Android, Apple/iOS, or Windows operating system. In order to watch streaming videos, the user would need to be connected to a Wi-Fi signal or to the internet.

OverDrive Video is a windows-based video format (WMV) that is only available on devices that use the Windows-based Operating System (OS).  You also must download the entire file before viewing. With the OverDrive Video/WMV files, once they are downloaded or transferred onto a device they stay there until the user deletes the files.
