There is always some buffering. Where does the line sit:
buffering, say, 5% of the file to achieve smooth playback;
buffering 100% of the file because your net connection is crap;
buffering 100% of the file and watching it 5 minutes after the
download is complete;
buffering 100% of the file and watching it a few days later, maybe
more than once.

Constant battle with kids:
me: we are over our monthly download limit, why are you downloading
kid: I'm not downloading, I am just watching.
