    Not 100% sure but my guess would be streaming is more of a memory hog due to the buffering at either side. There would also be a lot more processing done.

    I thought streaming and downloading were essentially the same from the server perspective. They only differ from the client perspective, e.g. a streamed video will start to play after a small bit is transferred, while a downloaded video is playable only after all data is transferred.

    Streaming places a higher demand on the client computer, but from the server perspective both techniques are simply transferring bits are the maximum rate supported by the connection.
