The browser may download the entire clip even though the user only watches the first couple of seconds, resulting in the vblogger paying for bandwidth that wasn't used to actually view video. (True streaming also lets you know exactly how much of your video was actually watched.) Actually on a side note, people who publish audioblogs through us aren't charged for what's NOT played. Each audioblog will have stats that say "actual listen time" There's no dramatic pre-loading happening, since that would be an unfair bandwidth billing. Why should you pay for something loading that someone never listened to. So I think that's a hurdle that can be easily overcome. ER
