    As a final note on YT, I have an account, In good standing.

    As such I can upload an 11 hour video.

    Not that I will unless I decide to make movies like Hollywood does.

    Hi,
    Best I believe you can do is reduce the quality of the video,
    Lower quality = less data usage,
    Gear symbol on the player,
    How toconfigure your Flash Player settings for maximum privacy and security
    Cheers.

    I just opened it & chose Prague as my location.
    On NetFlix I reloaded the movie & got this error message---

    If you had a vpn connection you could select somewhere in the USA as your location & most probably get NetFlix.
    This is not illegal.
    Me too it seems pretty cool.
