That is correct if it is served from your web hosting account. One reason people use Amazon S3 etc. to serve videos.If a video is 512mb in size to play one online will it use 512mb of bandwith?

Checked it out so I just put my videos at amazon and not on my site so they will play online.
Next dummy me question what is a "20,000 Get Requests, 2,000 Put Requests" ?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.
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.Next dummy me question what is a "20,000 Get Requests, 2,000 Put Requests" ?
Similar to standard web hosting where everything is metered that uses data transfer up or down / to or from the server.
So I understand this right was a get request just made on this video even if you did not play the video?
stop a get request? If so I would put the video on a second page so it would cut down on the get requests?Code:<!--more--> <!--nextpage-->
Can search bot set off get requests?
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.
