Videos will be screwed up on Youtube for a while...
« on: August 03, 2014, 09:12:55 am »
Because stupid me decided to try out Youtube 3 second "Branding" thing.
So I created a short 3 second wanky test video and applied it.
Now youtube is reprocessing all 700+ videos before it will let me remove it.
Great, thanks Youtube  |O
I can now expect thousands of WTF comments and emails...

Nothing that YT does surprises me any more. From changing commenting to something annoying, asking for a login every so often and then promptly dumping all subscriptions, to stuttering and stopping half way through anything ( though to be fair that is likely an issue with SAIX or MTN as the bandwidth suppliers here) or flat out refusing to play sound half way through unless I reload the page.

It shouldn't take more than reprocessing a single video. I bet there is a big server farm over there.
Drain the swamp.

PROTIP: Use your ISP's DNS, not Google's. Had months of issue because I 'forgot' I did that. Supersport Live streaming was unwatchable, it was going via Europe/USA just because of the DNS...

it's not the admins... it boils down to the management - and actually it's present in every single corporation.
majority of the issues are related to excessive cost reduction while trying to roll-out a shitload of new and fancy features (doesn't matter which corporation and what product we're talking about).
