Google Buys Twitch for $1 Billion

Google has now bought Twitch. With their already dominant video streaming site Youtube, do Google have a video streaming Monopoly?

All i hope is that Google keep running them as separate entities.

Every time google combines things together there are so many silly bugs.

Its really not fine. The servers are always having issues. If anything, access to google's hardware will improve twitch no end. They have the software, community and business model. Just not the servers.

So it'll be aight for 6 months until google start implimenting twitch emotes into youtube or something.

I will miss the old framerate and bitrate
google will compress the stream so much and lower the bitrate that 1080p is going to look like proper 480p

Twitch would have got so bad they'd have done that itself. Twitch has been struggling with its own popularity for ages.

Quote:
Starting today, Twitch will be implementing technology intended to help broadcasters avoid the storage of videos containing unauthorized third-party audio. We respect the rights of copyright owners, and are voluntarily undertaking this effort to help protect both our broadcasters and copyright owners.

What Is Audio Recognition?

We’ve partnered with Audible Magic, which works closely with the recorded music industry, to scan past and future VODs for music owned or controlled by clients of Audible Magic. This includes in-game and ambient music. When music in the Audible Magic database is detected (“Flagged Content”), theaffected portion of the VOD will be muted and volume controls for that VOD will be turned off. Additionally, past broadcasts and highlights with Flagged Content are exportable but will remain muted.
The Audible Magic technology will scan for third party music in 30 minute blocks — if Audible Magic does not detect its clients’ music, that portion of the VOD will not be muted. If third party audio is detected anywhere in the 30-minute scanned block, the entire 30 minutes will be muted.

its already backfired on them as well

The official Dota 2 competition vods have been muted because they contain Dota 2 music.
