Ok this is kind of a goofy question but I want to make sure I get it
right. Suppose we have a 25 mb video, that is 117 seconds long.  If we
wish for this streaming video to play smoothly with no compression,
buffering or skipping, the following bandwidth requirements must be

25 megabytes = 204800 kilobits.

204800 kb / 117 seconds ~ 1750kb/s

Does that look right to you?
