I recently downloaded a neat app to my cell phone (a Galaxy S5) which allows me to follow and stream audio and video for the SDSU Jackrabbits basketball games which I like to follow. Unfortunately it uses a lot of data even streaming through the phone and so far I can not find a way to set down the resolution or data use.  Has anyone else downloaded this app for a college sports team?  If so and you know how to set the resolution please post.  I watched a game the other day and it took 1.6 GB (which was fine then because I was resetting data on Verizon in a day and had lots of extra left to use) but if I stream through my computer on the normal web site and set down the resolution to 240p we can stream the same game for about 0.6 or 0.7 GB.  The wrinkle is not all the videos that I can stream through the mobile app seem to always be available on the web site otherwise I would just do it that way.

Who do you "Stream" through? What is the format of the downloads? Can you download in different formats?

Does the download site bounce anything by way of a cloud temp depository; as in, are you taking a double hit during the live viewing?

Would there be a way to Zip/ compress, the file before the download?

Just some ideas, maybe?

Hi Jacqueline, Have you tried the app settings? It's possible that you can change the resolution in the app settings or possibly in your app manager settings. Hopefully this helps, I see that Everett mentioned some good ideas as well. If you have any other questions please let me know. =)

Thanks to both of you for the suggestions.  I will look into those ideas, its frustrating that this app seems to be using up more bandwidth than you'd think it should be, especially considering that I am watching things on my phone screen which typically uses far less than running it over to the computer (i.e. Netflix)
