One of the UKs large residential ISPs publishes what their customers
use bandwidth for at
"Streaming protocols" do use up a large % there, but only 2.9% is
listed as used by BBC iPlayer (like a no advertising version of Hulu,
but only for one broadcaster), Rapidshare and Facebook are 1.9% each,
whilst YouTube is 9.7%.  It's kind of interesting.
