Metalupis: They don't, if you follow any of the people who upload regularly you realize that YouTube breaks down all the time
karmaceutical: So if I understand P2P networking at all... I have 2 tubes coming into my house. They are both connected to a larger tube to which everyone elses tubes are connected. So if I want to connect to the You Tube... my computer sucks stuff down my down tube, but it has to go somewhere when I'm done, so the fan kicks on and blows it back through the uptube... so that someone else can suck it. Internetting is dirty business.
The Voice of Doom: Well, one part of their solution seems to be to stall playing back videos after about 20 seconds until you reload the page.I guess they want to make sure that you really want to watch the whole video before sending the remaining data.
Peki: So essentially they learned how to stream video in a way similar to how P2P networks allowed people to seed movies and software.If only I had gone into computer programming as a kid. . .
Tobin_Lam: They probably reduced bandwidth a great deal by marking a whole bunch of mobile-compatible videos "not available on your device." I have videos on my favorites list that I can't watch on my phone anymore because of that. Why does it matter so much how I'm watching it? Isn't the whole point of putting a video on YouTube to get people to watch it?
Linux_Yes: they use Linux.lots and lots of Linux.
gopher321: Nothing matches...EVIL CAT.
Gnaglor: First time I've ever felt the need to say it, but subby fails. There was no science in that article. Pretty boring and non-informative really. How many times does one need to read that YouTube gets 72 hours of video every minute?

Once she conquers the whole crawling thing of course.
CujoQuarrel: roc6783: Peki: ***snip***Dude, shouldn't she be walking by now? She's 16 and all ...........
