Bandwidth is a measurement of data consumption. We list bandwidth usage in gigabytes (GB). When someone views/consumes your videos, then this will increase the bandwidth used by your account.
- A longer video will use more bandwidth than a short one.
- An HD video will use more bandwidth than an SD video.
- Higher video encoding bit rate settings will result in higher bandwidth usage.
Typically, the account type you have will be allotted enough bandwidth so that you won't experience overage fees. If you do near or exceed your allotted bandwidth, then please feel free to contact us and we will find a solution which better suits your needs.
