so, i can stream fine, but some sites want you to clik the HD thing or they shut you out.
why do i want to do that if i can already stream the same site just fine?
it only happens for certain things i try to stream.

if you clik the HD thing they want you to register and sign in and blah blah.
why would i want to do that?

thanks.

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking, but HD usually means the video is at higher resolution (typically "720p" or "1080p") and for display on high-resolution TVs or really any computer monitor.

I think some sites will ask you to register for HD because HD video files are larger, cost more to host, and thus, if nothing else, they're going to collect your info for spamvertising before they let you watch those bigger files. :mrgreen:

Those bigger files will take longer to stream/download and take up more space on your hard drive (but if you're streaming, only, that doesn't matter.)

If you don't want them to collect your info, all you are losing out is watching the files at higher resolution.

To stream HD, they want you to join and usually pay money. No thanks, I'll watch 480 for free thanks.
