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.
