#1 Asking for a friend who occasionally streams or "timeshifts" non-premium YT videos: What might that be costing YT or ISP, per GB? I'm sure it varies very widely, but maybe somebody could mention a range? We're talking residential cable, close-in suburb of big city. Content is mostly talks and docs, typically new-ish, ~60 min, 720, four to six-figure viewcount (thought some of that might be relevant to caching).

#2 Depends on your bitrate and resolution but assuming 4GB per hour of video content, the baseline would be s.t. like $0.03-0.04 per GB, or $0.12-0.15 per hour.

Additional costs per GET request might bump this up another couple of pennies fepemding on the traffic.

Here's pricing (not costs) from competitor Amazon for their AWS Elemental encoding and storage service offering.

#3 Lex, thanks for getting me started on this. I'll do some digging, but it looks as if the damage amounts to a few bucks per month, so I won't be starving the beast singlehanded. It's disgraceful that it's 2019 and I don't know these things off the top of my head. Felt especially shameless asking since, while not a geek, I absorbed a lot of that culture (FAQs, doing your homework before asking, etc.) decades ago. Again, thanks for humoring me.
