Does youtube uses full data?

    When you are not finishing the video and decided to exit the screen? When I stream youtube videos on LTE, it loads up so fast that it would go from 0 to 100 percent in less than 10 seconds... For example, if I stream a 20 minute video, it would finish loading the whole video in like less than 20 seconds.. Sometimes I'm not entertained enough to watch the whole video, so I decide to exit the video at around 5 minute.. If I only watch 5 minute of video, does that still take up the whole data because the server basically finish downloading the video? If so, that would really eat up my data because I like to watch random videos and exit them before I have the chance to finish watching the video.. Can anybody confirm this or do I need to do some testing..

    If you was to stream over WiFi you would save big . But if your only able to do over lte from carrier data that is always been a major problem WiFi is cheaper and easier to use . Carrier data will leave you with YouTube buffer so many times .

    Yes, if the entire video has already downloaded then your mobile carrier would count the whole video, not just what you watched.

    That explains the high data consumption I've been getting lately.. Oh well.
