For a back-of-the napkin calculation can we not assume that data equal
to the entire size of the file will be streamed to the client during
playback?  I understand that frame rate, etc. are important as well
but I do not need exact figures, just a general idea of what size
tube** is required on the viewer's side to see the video without
skipping.

**  The internet is not really made of tubes.  Unless you're from Alaska.
