Each month on YouTube, almost an hour of video is watched for every person on Earth. Getting all that video to the viewer as soon as possible is especially important to us, so we've taken on an initiative to make YouTube fast.
In this tech talk, we're going to present some of the projects we've been working on to speed up your viewing experience, including: HTML 5 video, image optimization, network scheduling, and more.
We're really excited to share what we've been up to and discuss techniques to improve performance on your own site.
