I think you might have confused the concept of a tcp stream with a video stream.

The Wireshark option to "Follow TCP stream" is used to display all the traffic over a particular TCP connection, not find a video stream.

There have been quite a few other questions on this site about locating a video stream, have a search for them.

Thanks for the reply jasper, I just tried to follow the steps of a youtube video where he uses the "Follow TCP stream" to find and download a Youtube video...

thanks bobdylan
