YouTube will reduce video quality due to epidemic

Alphabet Inc. has notified YouTube video hosting that it will reduce the quality of video in the European Union so that the Internet does not fall due to the situation when many Europeans switched to remote work in connection with the coronavirus epidemic.

According to Reuters, the company took such a step, since the videos make up a significant part of the Internet traffic.

Earlier, the same measure was taken by the streaming company Netflix. She also stopped showing high-definition video.

Meanwhile, YouTube users in Russia faced problems with its operation. According to Downdetector, they mostly complain about problems accessing the site (90% of complaints).
