Yes, it all uses data.  Any type of video eats up lots of data.  You need to connect to wifi if you want to save the data.

To watch videos, you must stream the data to your tablet.  It is the same as downloading, except your watching it in realtime.  Video uses lots of data.  It is not surprising you used up your data in 2 days streaming video.

If you go to the more everything section and look at the FAQ'S there is a chart that gives you an idea of how much data different activities use.

Does it matter if you download the app for you tube ? Another words if you have the app and use it does it still use the data up ? And what if you watch a tv program is that the same ?
