I love videos, BUT ...


I also pay a lot for my GBs of wireless service. I hate to remind folks who live where they have fast and unlimited service that I don't and there are still lots of people out there who are in the same position.

Once I click on a video, it begins to load and even though I may not want to watch 18 minutes of politics, or 5 minutes of some unknown singer, or even 3 minutes of cute puppies sitting under a tree barking - I am paying for whatever comes in. I have to be a "Quick Draw" to shut the bleep thing off!


I know that I am a little gun-shy, as far as clicking on things of interest. I also know that I would watch more of your fun things and recipes and educational items IF I knew ahead of time how much of my precious GBs would be used. Would it be too much trouble if I asked you to time your videos and write it in the beginning where I (we) can see it before clicking? I have noticed that a very few of you do this, and I thank you!

  1. I understand what you're saying...when I lived out in the boonies in VA. the ISP I had started charging for bytes used over their allowed amount (the allowed amount being tiny, tiny, tiny. I could open one website and use up my entire daily allotment of bytes. Needless to say I was thrilled when I moved and could access the internet through a cable company. I rarely use videos anymore...and thankfully I managed to set Facebook so it stopped opening a videos automatically...how stupid is that?! Hope you're well...I've probably been missing your posts on Facebook which is why I'm stopping by now...hope you're doing OK. (((((hugs)))))

  2. I post all of mine on Youtube. blogger will not upload the HD I think. So my would take data even at a few min. I mostly post them on my garden blog. And a few of the chickens on the one you visited. I wish they would give everyone equal data and range. My daughter can not get much service at all where she is. Best wishes to you.
