    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.

  • stevorkz
    stevorkz 2 months ago

    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.

      Most people who uses Macs use Adobe suite. And Adobe has an agreement with Intel to optimize their software for Intel processor. I don't know if it counts as antitrust practice, but there's that.

    I’m happy to hear you boys pronounce GIF properly!

  • Greg
    Greg 2 months ago

    I can't value a channel on a new platform at what $3-4/mo PER content creator. 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.

    Did you see pcie 4.0 50% faster ssd's. Where is the bottleneck going to be now? Tell me fastest CPU and memory and hard drive combo? I mean even turbo or over clocked? I saw 5.5 GHz CPU but then I always see slow memory with it like 3400. And now fast ssd's - I'm not sure where to go.

    I am wondering why every time I run a Geekbench test on my MacBook Pro 2019 model the Core Frequency graph inside Intel Power Gadget keeps on fluctuating, it does not become a steady line even though temperature is well below 90 celsius! 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 :@

  • Mike Coshan
    Mike Coshan 2 months ago

    If you output 720p then it’s the content that’s important & not pin sharp high quality as we aren’t watching a movie that we pay very close attention in 1080p or 4K. 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

    I guess you aren't aware of that 5G also has so-called sub-6GHz bands? For instance, 3,5GHz with 100MHz bandwidth compared to similar bands in 4G with 20 MHz bandwidth.

    I like mrDJKdnb's comment (from the chat). Keep the high bitrate and add the option to preload (or maybe even download) to the people with bad internet.
    I can't say how many times I've been saved by my youtube downloaders because the site decided make that either the clip, or the site in its entirety slow/unavailable.

    Benjamin Jesuiter 2 months ago

    You could solve the problem of communicating the 720p looks as good like 1080p TheXvid by writing 720p/yt 1080 p as quality chooser. Or, simply add the Bitrate to the quality selection!

    Please murder my connection with Floatplane! I've got 180 down and make sure to keep my wireless on a clear (or mostly clear) channel. It can stand up to a full Steam library re-download, so it should be able to handle murderous 4k streaming on my PC. My MacBook Pro on the other hand may run into some issues, but if 1440p is an option (please!!) I'll stream that instead.

    I went to go checkout Floatplane to see if the quality was visually more pleasing and couldnt find a single video that I could "try out".
    I recommend you guys setup some kind of demo video with good video-type diversity so we can see how different views look at a higher bitrate (have clips from sunset views over oceans to city stuff with skateboards or what have you and transition between different locales and topics).

  • Mike Hudgins
    Mike Hudgins 2 months ago

    I'm disappointed that Linus isn't interested in talking about the Oculus Quest. It's a brand new category of VR. It was the disagreeable VR coverage that personally led me to drop out of Floatplane. I know VR is definitely not an LTT focus, but when big innovations do come out, I would at least want to hear thoughts about it. Maybe I am in the minority here, but positive or negative thoughts would be better than the apathy we seem to be getting. When we do get VR coverage, it often ignores REALLY important details like the differences between the Oculus SDK and the Steam SDK, and the huge difference in native titles. Say Nvidia builds a Shield tablet that directly compares to a Nintendo Switch, I would expect LTT to mention the difference between the games available on both devices (clear winner being the Switch obviously), but with VR it's completely ignored for seemingly no reason. The Quest really is a device of magic, passion, and innovation. I just really don't understand the cold shoulder Oculus gets from tech TheXvidrs. They get excited about an extra laptop screen but don't care about a new compelling category of mobile VR device. Linus can't even be asked to review it lol.

    What is jif?
    Do you mean gif? Like gift (without the last letter 't')
    Or do you say jigabyte instead or gigabyte too?
    You surely don't say jraphics instead of graphics, cause you know it's Graphics Interchange Format.
    I don't care what the developers/creators thought how it should be pronounced, they are not linguists, they were wrong.
    If you don't believe me I have a file format for you I have developed: FWE, it should be pronounced as "only stupid people pronounce gif as jif"
