OOTB SharePoint 2013 do not provide a real streaming service. However it support live streaming video provided by an external streaming server or service (like youtube)

So the video you uploaded to SharePoint are not providing to user thru "streaming". They are actually "downloading" to their local cache and play. If you want to provide real streaming you need to purchase 3rd party engine or build your own.
