hi there , if i downgrade the quality on the video i watch on my cellphone do it use less data ?
For sure less quality less data if all the other things are the same such compression method, compression rate, key frame etc

Yes Marcel, it will use less data if you downgrade the quality on the video.

Yes it takes less datas.
Marcel, if you're using data to stream the videos I suggest you do in fact downgrade the quality of what you'll get a surprise when you find out your data gets confined fast. Meanwhile the Fizz internet plans are unlimited so you don't have to worry about that.

Thanks for the question
As others say, yes it does! You can also check your data usage from your account I’m case you want to double check.
Yes, of course, if you downgrade the quality of video, you will use less data on your mobile plan.

Yes. Some apps also let you select always lower quality when using cellular data, like netflix, so you don't have to manually change it every time
Yes. Also, you should find a data saver mode on your phone. That should help !
