Accelerated traffic = bitrate * duration * number of viewers. You can use this formula to estimate how much traffic will be needed.
For example, if a video lasts for one hour at a bitrate of 500 Kbps and is watched by 100 users, the traffic consumed will be about 500 / 8 * 3600 * 100 = 22,500,000 KB = 22.5 GB
A task flow is to perform multiple template tasks at a time by splicing them. The tasks contained in the task flow are charged at the same prices as the corresponding billable items.
