    I opened some 720p file for comparison and it turns out that it cover almost exactly same area that YouTube window in default view (with my settings ofc), so why the heck I'm watching you in 1080p instead of 720p? Why YouTube is not automagically switching me to 720p if my window size is close to or smaller then 720p? Wouldn't it save them a tone of bandwidth?

      Im sorry but Riley is very nerve grating, I found myself shouting "omg shut up" while on headphones. He seems to think hes funny and keeps interrupting and comes off as annoying, especially when you are trying to hear the information.

              jif is a toilet cleaner. a GIF is kittens...... nvidia have teamed up with nintendo to make a super nintendo with 2080RTX GPU's in SLI, so you can play your old super FX chip games at more than 7 frames per second....... Eizo flexiscan 3237 4k monitor is a really nice option. bit expensive but totally worth it.

                Murder my line please ... I got about 400mbits you can destroy!
                That said ... why not have the files in one format (4k high bit rate) then transcode the stream based on bandwidth available.
                Or would that destroy your servers CPU's?
                I have a plex server that works quite well on that front but i'm serving up hundreds / thousands of streams.

                  17:10-27:10 Could floatplane not just add in between options for bitrate like a "standard" 720p and a HQ 720p which is gonna be the Floatplane optimized bitrate.

                                    Floatplane Bit rate suggestion: have a setting/toggle switch that changes between performance mode (low bit rate) vs quality mode (high bit rate).

                                    People don't need to understand bit rates to switch between and see 1080p start working when they have bad internet.

                                        I prefer "GIF" with a hard G because that G stands for a word beginning with a hard G. So there. English fucking sucks for spelling rules and consistency, because it basically has none whatsoever.

                                          Lost respect for Riley. At least Linus is doing it as a joke, but saying "JIF" is comparable to flat earthers in my books. It obviously originates from someone who saw the abbreviation when GIFs first came out, said "JIF" because of the whole G that can be pronounced in certain situations as J. It is wrong. Dont you want to stop being wrong? The only proof it seems that this "creator" that Linus mentions has that it is "JIF", is a solid "Dude....trust me". Where as if you use your brain and see that "Graphics Interchange Format" is with a "G" not a "J", then you have a more solid argument.

My idea is $2-5/mo for 2-3 selected pieces a week from all creators on your platform so we can see what it's about and get a taste of the other creators on your platform, then add $1-2/mo per creator we choose to see all their content each week instead of the 2-3 selected pieces.

Also the Frequency never reach the advertised speeds of 4.8GHz, actually it barely maintains its baseclock of 2.4 GHz. Could this be a limitation imposed by Apple? It really pissing me off to pay for a premium product with limited potential imposed by the manufacturer due to bad chassis design :@

So personally for the wan show I think 720p would be perfectly acceptable to a lot of people. But use higher 1080p or higher resolution when doing Linus Tech Tips where we need a more detailed view of the product being reviewed
