Re: Youtube will not stream video on any devices

It seems to be also affecting newly uploaded videos on other websites as well as application dowloading services such as the microsoft store and google play.

Re: Youtube will not stream video on any devices

  • Some sites are not working for some people. Among them: iCloud.com, Google Drive, Dropbox, YouTube, and others.
  • HN is aware of this issue
  • The HN engineers are working to resolve it
  • The issue may be external to HN
  • A deadly pandemic is affecting our country and the world. As a result of this, millions of people are working and learning from home, and straining ISP systems to capacity.
  • The issue is most noticeable to users of satellite internet, but it is affecting users of other ISPs as well
  • While terrestrial-based ISPs (such as cable) can add more capacity, satellite ISPs have finite capacity and can't add more without launching new satellites, a process that is very expensive and takes many months
  • Streaming is not working well for many people. The best thing to do about streaming right now is to avoid it.
  • These times call for all of us to show patience and strength in the face of chaos, and to shift our priorities.
