Prevent half of page refresh after clicking link?
I'm not a professional web designer by any means, just an interested amateur, so please bear with me
I have a site I'm designing in Joomla for my small town community radio station. I want to basically divide it into two divs to start with--a top one and a bottom one. The top one will contain menu links, a live webcam feed, and a streaming audio feed. The bottom div will contain the "targets" of the clicked menu links (the text content of the website)
What I'm trying to figure out is this: Is there a way to set this up so that if a visitor clicks on a link in the top div, that the bottom div's content changes, but the top div doesn't reload/refresh? In fact once the user first visits the site, the top div should NEVER reload/refresh no matter what links on our site they click.
The reason I want it set this way is, if I don't do this, then the webcam feed and streaming audio will keep restarting every time they click a new link.
Any ideas as to how I can prevent those feeds from restarting every time a link is clicked? Any help would be much appreciated

My recommendation would be to have your live feed open in a new window.
