Long time BeyondPod user, first time poster. I could not find the answer to my question via search.

I frequently use BeyondPod in my car, while commuting. Sometimes I like to listen to video, and the "Play Videos As Audio" setting is quite handy. But I can't help but wonder about the data usage. Sometimes I listen to Youtube videos, and since I couldn't figure out how to do that with BeyondPod, I use the app "uListen," which downloads only the audio portion to my phone (I believe it does not download the whole video).

So, my question is, when I have enabled this Play Videos As Audio setting:
  • Is BeyondPod downloading the full video anyway, and just playing the audio portion of the video?
  • Is BeyondPod downloading only the audio portion (like uListen)?

Depending on the answer, this may morph into a feature request.
