Remember the emails and pop-ups, some are still going on. Just twigged. Use you-tube (now called vevo) and if you replay you still have to use your bandwidth as the video is no longer saved to temp folder. So if you like a certain tune and wish to play again remember it downloads every time. Godoodlcon lives.
lotvic, Being dumb myself I don't understand your post. So we're square there.
What I'm trying (very hard) to put over is that if you streamed from You Tube, in the olden days, you could, if you didn't leave the page, play the same video again, through your temporary folder, without having to stream/download again. You can't do it now even on the same opened page.
I think all this streaming is going to start costing in the next few years not just bandwidth from ISP charges but also the channels that are now free/low cost subscription - can see all that changing once 'they' get us used to receiving stuff on demand.
lotvic, exactly. I think I'll see a time where I'll go back to postal bills and not bother with the internet. Paying £18 a month for nothing and extra billing will put me off. Things seem to be changing for the worst again as the money grabbers, greedy outfits, are destroying a good thing, even worse than the pirates.
Time to take stock and think if things are heading the Google/You Tube and Vevo way, then the monthly bill from the ISP might not be worth it.
Update. Strange as it seems the video that's streamed is still in a temporary folder somewhere. Once the video is streamed then the play icon changes to the refresh icon in the player. If you click that then it streams again.
Now in the player's streaming bar (for want of a better word) just drag the button back to the start and you can watch the video again without any downloading. I'm puzzled to what is going on and where the temp folder is for these streamed vids? Any ideas?
