Like me, some people may be constrained by the monthly cap they can consume the Internet usage. Thus, my question is,
Will replaying YouTube videos again cost you twice the network usage? I always assumed that once that I've played it, it'd be cached on my machine locally, so it won't consume any more network traffic to reply it again right afterward (without closing and re-opening the video).
However, the answer to question Can you tell by the network traffic whether a video was watched or downloaded from YouTube? seems to reveal otherwise:
- replaying YouTube videos again will cost you twice the network usage; once more will triple the network usage
- simply jumping back to rewind to an earlier spot might cost your network usage as well, if it falls off that internal buffer range.
Is it true, or is it still true, or I'm interpreting it incorrectly?
