Thread: Streaming Video

  1. #1
    Hello everyone, didn't know where i should post this, so i figured lounge is a good spot
    Does streaming video or audio affect your bandwidth? like if your isp only allows you to have 10 gigs a month or 5 gigs or whatever, does streaming use it up fast, if at all?
    Thanks

    Band width is the amount of traffic comming thru your ftp, therefore it does'nt matter if you have 1000 vids or none, if no one comes to your site your bandwidth will remain unused.

    Every time someone clicks on a page or link it uses that much bandwidth

    eg: if your video is 1meg and someone clicks on it, it will use 1meg of bandwidth

    Hope that helps

    actually i was thinkin more in terms of how my isp only allows 5 gigs a month of upload/download traffic, and i was wondering if streaming videos or audio affects this or if its souly downloading or uploading?
    Thanks

    yep it sure will, it can use up as much as downloading. DUMeter is a nice program for keeping track of bandwidth usage.

    What has your ISP got to do with Streaming vids and bandwidth?
    Unless you're uploading it on your free ftp which comes with your isp.

    Heyyyyy I was actually being helpful

    Usually when someone talks about "Streaming" it a clickable link that plays as it d/l's from an ftp

    And I only dribble when a certain member is on
