    hi Marques, you are much much more younger than me, but you inspire me a lot in my videos editing workflow.... i admire you, you look almost like me but you are so smart, hardworker, successful, that means a lot for people like me... you know, i live in a part of the world where mens with a lot of melanin are often humiliated just because of that and worst in a neighbour country sale as slaves!!! i guess it's not easy everyday, but keep doing what you do, keep being visible not just for the money, not just for you but for US! God bless U bro!

    I personally chose content way way above quality. Rarely do I consider video quality when I watch a movie. The only time it is important is if text must be read, as in programming videos.

  • pepeanto
    pepeanto 4 days ago

    The reason you see once in a while a frame in full quality is because the algorithm uses approximation relative between the previous frame and the following one and this happens for several seconds.. We can say that every frame you see is a result of math applied to previous ones starting from an absolute one. Sometimes it can happen that frames get broken which brakes the following seconds as well. So, to prevent this once every X seconds a full frame is saved which is taken as the new "absolute" one and used to calculate the next ones until again we hit another absolute one. If you take a look at any of the videos the absolute ones where you are clear they are evenly spaced out. Hope that helps

    Technically this has to be called “ What happens when you upload a video to RUplus 1001 times”. Cause it takes one upload to put the entire video on RUplus

    why did you use a video with a still background? a moving background would look a lot more extreme (i-frames etc)

  • Fabio Valentini

    I guess this means the actual codecs that are used to decompress and then compress the video on youtube's servers have some issues with color shift / bias? Also, why are they re-compressing the audio track when it's the exact same bitrate that they spit out anyway? 🤔️

    Question is did you include this upload..for instance should upload 20 actually be 21 as we are watching 🤔
