Show & Tell: Google Video – How Video Gets to You

screen-shot-2016-12-06-at-1-13-48-pmGoogle always has awesome animations. They truly are on the forefront of CSS animations. So I was watching a video (Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings ‘This Land Is Your Land’ live in Chicago) on YouTube the other night, and it was a bit choppy. Google put up a notification bar below the video asking if my video playback was having trouble. Curious, I clicked the link. I was first presented with a Google Video Quality Report. From the page: “There are many factors that influence your video streaming quality, including your choice of Internet Service Provider (ISP). Learn how your ISP performs and understand your options.”

There is also a link that explains how video gets from them to you. This is the part that I loved. The animations show you in simple terms how video travels from them to you, using an image from the video you were watching as an example. Have a look!
