I have been on some websites and have noticed that they actually have streaming video and IRC chat.  They neat thing is I didn't have to download any special plugin or such to get the streaming video to work perfectly.  How exactly do I achieve streaming video for my browser without plugins?  I believe Netscape has some kind of PUSH/PULL command, maybe this helps in streaming?  

Now does the server need to be setup in some special way to achieve streaming for the website?  And also, what kind of file does one need to have to make such a streaming file (is it multiple JPG pictures or just one big AVI file or what) ?

Now for IRC, if one wants to have IRC chat in his/her website how would one go about achieving this?  Does the server need to be setup in some special way?

Thank you VERY much for your help. MUCH IS APPRECIATED!!
