Sites should be able to tune their service to deliver the best experience
possible to as many people as possible. This means being able to pause
buffering for users that download the clip much faster than playback rate. This
also means being concise of connections that are not as fast and support
buffering the entire clip, where there are risks of buffer under runs.  Not
sending video data that will never be used, enables severs to deliver the
content to more visitors at lower cost.
