I have bandwidth limits. If i watch a video stream on my ipad, do I consume less bandwidth than on my 15" macbook pro ?


iPad, iOS 6.1.3

    Depends on the video stream / website. If they have coded it to deliver lower-resolution (or lower quality) video to mobile devices, then yes, you may use less bandwidth, but it's not something you can universally rely on. If there's no special mobile encoding, then you're going to receive exactly the same video with the same bandwidth.
