Now Facebook go for lower video quality

On Sunday, the world’s largest social network followed the steps of Netflix, Alphabet Inc’s YouTube, Amazon and Walt Disney in response to a call from the European Union to prevent internet crashes as thousands of people from home work because of the coronavirus outbreak. “To help mitigate potential network congestion, we will temporarily decrease the bit rates for videos on Facebook and Instagram in Latin America,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement, adding that the company is working with partners to reduce bandwidth restrictions. control with greater demand.

Facebook Inc will lower the quality of video streaming on its platform and on Instagram in Latin America, by replicating measures taken in Europe, to reduce network congestion in a region that is beginning to feel the grip of the corona virus.

Brazilian streaming platform GloboPlay, owned by the country’s largest TV channel, has announced that video streaming in 4K and Full High Definition will be temporarily suspended from Monday to preserve Brazil’s internet infrastructure and allow more people to access the content. Asked about future plans to lower streaming quality in Brazil, such as in Europe, Netflix said it will “continue to work with ISPs and governments around the world and apply these changes elsewhere, if necessary.”

The local telecom regulator, Anatel, has signed a commitment agreement with carriers and other providers to keep Brazilians connected during the coronavirus outbreak, and has set up a crisis committee to coordinate actions and monitor data traffic and network capacity. “Anatel, in the context of the risk management and network performance monitoring group, will prioritize emergency solutions with the primary objective of ensuring continuity of service and access by the Brazilian population,” said the regulator.
