Through measurements on our testbed, we show how users of Netflix could make energy savings of up to 34% by adjusting video quality settings. By using Netflix as a case study, we aim to assess the impact of energy usage in Video-on-demand (VoD) services. We estimate the potential impact of video quality settings on energy usage on a global scale.
