    Please Help me figure band with to dollars.

    Hi,

    I don't know how to figure bandwith can some some one help please.

    If a video is 512mb in size to play one online will it use 512mb of bandwith?

    How does this work?

    That is correct if it is served from your web hosting account. One reason people use Amazon S3 etc. to serve videos.

    Hi Andy,

    Thanks

    Checked it out so I just put my videos at amazon and not on my site so they will play online.

    Found this

    As part of the AWS Free Usage Tier, you can get started with Amazon S3 for free. Upon sign-up, new AWS customers receive 5 GB of Amazon S3 storage, 20,000 Get Requests, 2,000 Put Requests, 15GB of data transfer in, and 15GB of data transfer out each month for one year.
    Next dummy me question what is a "20,000 Get Requests, 2,000 Put Requests" ?

    I don't know but I guess it's like the Get requests would be for getting the content e.g. to play a video and the Put requests would be to upload new videos.

    Similar to standard web hosting where everything is metered that uses data transfer up or down / to or from the server.

    Hi,

    So I understand this right was a get request just made on this video even if you did not play the video?



    Will

    Code:
    <!--more-->
    
    <!--nextpage-->
    stop a get request? If so I would put the video on a second page so it would cut down on the get requests?

    Can search bot set off get requests?

    That probably would cut back on requests/bandwidth. That way only people who want to see the video will see it rather than having the video load for every single user.

    I am lost here.

    But it seems, from what I have experienced on my blogs, that if you have a video in a post (and you host that video yourself on your blog like I do), all a visitor sees is the video picture (or whatever you want to call it).
    But to actually view the video, they have to click on the go button (or the big arrow used on most videos).
    So no bandwidth is being used by the video itself unless viewed.

    Now the other way, and I don't do this anymore, is to have the video autoplay upon loading.
