minor issue...

There's problem in the part where you perform a speed test streaming a YouTube video over Wi-Fi after having loaded it over the EDGE connection. You loaded the same video.

Thats was an innacurate speed when it loaded. Since the video had previously loaded over EDGE, it stayed on your browsing history, and so when you streamed it over Wi-Fi it didn't take long because it was already loaded and played to begin with.

No, it's different video stream.

You can't see it very well in the video, (a web video of a web video doesn't usually look that great,) but what Eric is trying to explain in the audio at that part is when you stream YouTube over Wi-Fi, it senses the faster connection and streams a MUCH higher-quality video. It's less compressed and higher resolution. It's a very clear difference in person. The only difference you can see clearly in a video is that it starts much faster, but that is the connection, not a cache.

The lower-quality stream, if it were cached (and I'm not it would be, since this isn't a browser) wouldn't help with a different, higher-quality stream.

I understand what you mean. Yeah, well I guess it would help if you saw it in person.

My bad lol
