I've been having an issue with my bandwidth.
I recently installed a bandwidth usage meter on my PC. I've found that when I watch a movie on YouTube, the bandwidth usage continues to increase even after I close the browser. So, if I start watching a streaming video and decide to close the window before it finishes, it continues to waste my bandwidth. The only way I've found to stop it is to either put the computer to sleep or shutdown. Otherwise, it just keeps increasing.
Is the bandwidth supposed to be used when watching streaming videos even when the browser is closed? If not, how can I stop my PC from wasting massive amounts of bandwidth unnecessarily?
