Google Video Quality Report

Google Video Quality Report.

YouTube has a global network
.
There are multiple copies of YouTube videos in our servers all around the world, so we can start the video stream from as close to you as possible.

pick the shortest, most direct route.
When you click play, YouTube carries the video data through its system to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) via the most efficient path possible. Sometimes, exceptional circumstances mean we may need to use a less-direct path.

We can’t do it alone.
When your ISP receives your video from YouTube, they begin the important job of carrying it across their network to your home. They must ensure there’s enough capacity where they receive the data from YouTube. Otherwise, your video streaming quality will suffer.

Finally, the video must travel into your home.
In addition to congestion in your ISP’s network, your video performance can also be affected by the size of the ISP’s connection into your home, your wi-fi setup, and other in-home factors such as the number of connected devices.

Congestion on any portion of the end-to-end path will affect your video streaming quality, especially at peak times.
This can cause frequent interruptions and fuzzy picture quality. When everything works well, you should get a smooth HD video experience.

Google is worried

Google is worried that the US government is going to start hacking into computers all over the world

Google has publicly expressed its opposition to new laws in the US that would make it legal for the government to hack into computers.What the US government is proposing is a law that would allow it to be able to hack into computers in the US if it has a warrant.The main thing that Google is worried about is an expansion of the proposed law that could let the government legally hack into computers in other countries.

The government wants to be able to hack computers that have been hidden using software like a virtual private network. That means that their exact location is unknown. Google fears that the government won’t be able to tell where the computers it’s hacking into are, and it could hack into computers in other countries.

Google Chrome will adopt HTTP/2 in the coming weeks

Google Chrome will adopt HTTP/2 in the coming weeks, drop SPDY support in early 2016
chrome
HTTP/2’s primary changes from HTTP/1.1 focus on improved performance. Some key features such as multiplexing, header compression, prioritization and protocol negotiation evolved from work done in an earlier open, but non-standard protocol named SPDY. Chrome has supported SPDY since Chrome 6, but since most of the benefits are present in HTTP/2, it’s time to say goodbye.

HTTP is an application protocol that forms the foundation of data communication for the World Wide Web. Over the years, it has become dated, and there have been many initiatives to speed it up. SPDY was one of them, but Google now admits it is no longer needed.

HTTP/2 will be the first new version of the HTTP protocol since HTTP 1.1, which was standardized back in June 1999. Google’s move should surprise no one given that HTTP/2, currently being developed by the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Bis (httpbis) working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), is based on SPDY.

Each year, Google changes its search algorithm around 500–600 times. While most of these changes are minor, Google occasionally rolls out a “major” algorithmic update (such as Google Panda and Google Penguin) that affects search results in significant ways.

For search marketers, knowing the dates of these Google updates can help explain changes in rankings and organic website traffic and ultimately improve search engine optimization. Below, we’ve listed the major algorithmic changes that have had the biggest impact on search.

These updates are good for most of them and sad to some of the people, because after google algorithm updates some website got doubled their previous traffic and some of the website lost their traffic and they are dependent on Google and Google products like Google Adsense, Google Business and some other products.
