quicktime streaming and cpu minutes
This is probably a dumn question...but googling "cpu minutes" and "quicktime streaming" doesn't answer my question...

does streaming video use up cpu minutes like other processes?

(6 min video...hinted streaming...38mb)

thanks...

quicktime streaming and cpu minutes
drumming this up again...don't want to ask support...yet.

1. does quicktime or realtime streaming use cpu minutes?

2. how do I calculate a good determination of bandwidth use? I am mostly concerned with the videos themselves. Although Dreamhost offers quite a bit of bandwidth space, it concerns me.

I am thinking of moving a client over to DH (would rather to dedicated than shared though)...this client may get too big, too fast...and since DH isn't planning on Dedicated servers for a while, I want to make sure moving them to shared hosting is a viable choice. I could even move them to one of my strictly business plans which has about 3,000GB of bandwidth and wait for dedicated hosting at dreamhost, but then I am still concerned about the cpu minutes...which probably doesn't use cpu minutes...??? At least I know the box I am on doesn't have problems.

3. If I use hosting.com's dedicated boxes...does anyone know if I have to install quicktime streaming...etc. myself?

thanks
