TEXTp saves YouTube bandwidth, money
YouTube Blog: TEXTp saves YouTube bandwidth, money
Itís great news that there are 24 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute, we support 1080p and HD uploads are rising quickly, but thatís also meant increasing bandwidth costs cutting into our bottom line. And so, in our drive to keep expenses under control, weíve decided that April 1 is the perfect day to take the important step of offering a new way to experience YouTube: text-only mode, or TEXTp.
Why we need Flash, Silverlight or HTML 5, when there is TEXTp?
