netflix streams

Netflix users are not fans of moderation. According to recent stats from Sandvine, Netflix accounts for 37.1 percent of video traffic on fixed access networks, a that number will only go up.

That's great for Netflix, but how do you make sure all that binge watching doesn't degrade the quality of streams? That is what Netflix has been working on for several years, and it has now cracked the code with technology that could reduce data consumption by up to 20 percent.

Good to know Gary. Matroska Multimedia Container (.mkv) can put out some really high quality video/audio with a low file size. Thing is it takes forever to convert on a home machine, maybe much quicker on a dedicated multimedia converter.

Wonder if Netflix is looking at something based on it.

Re: netflix streams

With all the devices connected today it has to be done.  I don’t see where cable TV will go away but Internet TV is going to be the most competition they will ever see.  While the technology will not affect cable internet mobile and satellite will gain an enormous popularity, especially in rural areas.
