    Hi guys,

    Just a quick question, what happens to streaming videos you view over the net? Do they stay on your hard drive or stay on temporarily? Or dp they not touch your hard drive at all?

    Thanks

    As I understand it, streaming videos don't really write to your hard drive other than the buffer or cache that they need to playback the stream. Any remnants of the video that are left on your machine would most likely only be something that points to the streaming server and not a viewable file.
