somehow i can't understand you

do you mean installing FreeBSD for this will use less bandwidth?

about your question - simply use FTP or HTTP for this. This will be RIGHT 
solution, contrary to youtube nonsense that prevents any caching or simply
downloading movie by forcing you to use their flash player.

fortunately we have /usr/ports/www/youtube_dl :)
