YouTube has announced that it will reduce video quality so that their infrastructure can respond to everyone in the face of heavy demand. A similar statement came from Netflix in the past months.
While many people spend time at home due to the pandemic, video platforms are among the most preferred entertainment resources at this point. YouTube, one of the largest video platforms, announced that it has decided to limit video quality in the face of heavy demand in Europe. YouTube’s video quality across Europe is expected to decline somewhat in a short time.
NETFLIX IS THE FIRST TO REDUCE BROADCASTING QUALITY
In the past months, Netflix announced that they decided to reduce the bitrate of all broadcast streams in Europe for 30 days, and that the application would reduce the Netflix traffic on European internet networks by approximately 25 percent.
