No, you'd be lucky if you could open 6 emails, Betsy. 50mb is NOTHING! For video streaming you'd be looking at at least 1gb,possibly more.

Depending on what kind of video as well. I've streamed flash video that took 1 GB PER HOUR. Brutal.

It is just a video of someone talking. Not even moving from the chair.

It makes no difference what the video is about, Betsy. What counts is the quality of the video. But whatever the case, you'll NEVER get by 6 hours of streaming with just 50MB of data... 6 minutes is more like it.

For further illustration of my point, the video that I had referred to earlier was not of particularly great quality (~320p), but the compression was bad.

Hi Betsy,

This link should help you figure out roughly how much data you would need!
