Depends on the quality - a musicvideo could be anything from 10 to 50 MB... Or thereabouts. I rarely stream vids. But I'm sure someone has all the details.

What phone are you using? For iOS and Android you could watch videos inside the Skyfire browser - it compresses data to a degree, which means a) you can watch with a less than perfect connection and b ) you go a tad lighter on your data allowance.
On a Blackberry or Symbian phone you could use the Bolt browser that similarly streams a mobile optimised lighter version of youtube vid-dery.

Well if you're watching music videos in 1080p, it's easy to burn through 100s, if not 1000s of MBs per day...
