    Is there any advantage of allowing peoples streaming your videos? I am just asking because I feel many peoples steaming my un-watermarked videos that uses a lot of my bandwidth, but then what is the point ?

    Ps: should I put watermark on all my videos ?

    The point is that they have the content for free, they earn the money on ads, and you pay for the bandwidth. ;)

    Watermark, forbid foreign Referers or tweak a cookie-checking method into your player. Until you are an adult sponsor for example, giving promo content to your affiliates this way, you should cease this kind of leaching. IMHO
