This question already has an answer here:
General question that even a godaddy tech couldn't really answer for me. Im making a website with lots of video on it, most are embedded from youtube. I know, to stream videos, I should upgrade to a faster / better server. I just don't know why, or what that means. Will the videos actually load faster for the user? If I upgrade to a dedicated server should I host the videos on my server or will they still run faster being embedded from youtube(since youtube probably spends lots of money on its servers and streaming quality).
I know, on the users end, it really depends on how fast their internet connection is, but will upgrading my server allow the users computer to receive the files from the server at a higher rate therefor making the videos actually load quicker, or something... lol?
Also, if upgrading a server helps with streaming video, my jpg's / png's should download to a users computer quicker as well right? So a full page image might not flash, as it loads, as it would with a default / starter godaddy server (just as an example)...?
