    stream has its disadvantage. If the server has a lot of people downloading from, then you will have a very laggy video. And it will start and stop. Might as well don't watch.

    Well, I copy the streams, and watch them later..
    Best of both worlds..

    Streaming suppose to be online, depending on what site and on your security settings (or lack of them), some being real nest of virus. Sites come and go over the years. With a downloaded video, no bad surprise, no virus, no need to be online, etc.

    That's why I store the video and watch it later.. No lag then..

    I prefer download. That way I don't have to worry about lag. I can put it on a device that does not have internet access. I can download it, keep it and watch it when ever I want because sometimes streaming sites go down.

    Personally, I think it is always better to download and view media directly from your device. Rather than stream it.

    many places are different, it is expensive here as well, even with a contract

    and really would I risk coming to this site in MaccyD, there is enough spies going on let alone going to public places to get a fix
