Streaming your iTunes video purchases on iPhone and iPad should let you save lots of precious storage space on your iPhone or iPad.
However, for a small number of people, iTunes file caching seems to be eating up more space on their devices.

This can result in your "Other" storage growing to a tremendous size, and the dreaded "out of storage" message popping up on your iPhone or iPad. This is exactly the issue our reader John is having:
