I wanted to know if browsing a page takes the same data as downloading it.
Also, does streaming a youtube video take the same bandwidth as downloading it.
The obvious answer would be yes, because buffering is basically downloading in itself.
But I have noticed that it takes far too much data while downloading youtube videos using a Youtube Downloader. Or is it, because, I am downloading videos in a different Resolution and the youtube downloader downloads videos in HD by default.
Please give me a Linux based answer. I have heard that youtube videos when streamed used to get saved in the /tmp/ folder, NOT ANY MORE cuz of flash update to 10.2. Please check
I am not sure if this is the right forum for this question. Please move it to an appropriate forum in that case.
