    Has anyone managed to work out the data used during a 15 minute flight on a live stream?

    I would like to do a couple but don't want to burn through my 5gb monthly limit in one flight.

    .6gb / 15 mins using twitch on a Shield according to @prostreetcamaro on a different forum. Probably similar on a YouTube stream.

    Sounds fair enough. Anyone else done some calculations to confirm?

    Google live for 720P is:
    • Max: 4000 kbps
    • Suggested: 2500 kbps
    • Minimum: 1500 kbps
    This means: ~250 KB*sec * 60 * 15 = 225000KB = 225MB more or less (in suggested mode)
