I a 178Mb file fast enough to steam it...
Everyone is mixing their units up on this thread
178 Mb = 178Megabits = 22.25 Megabytes, so would stream fine :-)

A reminder of the correct units:

b = bits
B = bytes
m = milli
M = Mega
k = kilo

Megabit = Mb (not mb or MB)

Megabyte = MB (not mb or Mb)

Kilobit = kb (not KB or Kb)

Kilobyte = kB (not KB or kb)

To refresh your knowledge and usage of SI units:

and of Megabyte:
