    what is streaming

    Original Poster

    OK so I am confusing streaming with downloading, if I download can I then watch off line.

    streaming is watching a movie online without downloading onto your computer. same as watching tv on iplayer or watching a video on youtube.

    not necessarily, streaming really is just that and temp file or buffer usage is dependant on protocol used and whether caching is involved or not.

    MSE - Which uses more of my GB Allowance - 'live' streaming or downloading....

    Then only possible difference would be that the streaming media could be lower resolution than the downloaded version but that's rare with today's bandwidth/internet speeds.

    If you want more links or actually want to understand it more - try searching Google - you'll find lots of educational stuff using the search facility

    ? i do actually know quite a bit about all the related technologies. not sure why you would qualify anything with a link to mse
    the technology you seem to have a problem with understanding is data transport streams which are quite unlike the mobile data labels you are referring to and what the OP appears to have posted.
