      YouTube videos tend to be relatively small compared to other video files. If your on Max then I wouldn't be worrying about your bandwidth usage, just don't try and download the net.

      Are you sure it was youtube as they have a restriction on file size and time.

      Your video is limited to 10 minutes and 100 MB
