Google destroy's their aquisitions. I would have like to have seen MS win this bid.

Not sure what's up with your internet conenction, I can stram live youtube events at 1080 and with no buffer or delay 90% of the time, can't say the same for Twitch sadly 

 

More like 95+% of the time.

 

From what i heard some isp in USA throttle the connection when accessing youtube. That might be why some folks here have so much problem with it.

 

I'm with Bell Sympatico. Crappy connection and speed. So far i watched three 1080p movies on youtube (one free and two i paid for) and i did not buffer one single time. I watch many Trailers and music videos in 1080p and i rarely if ever buffer.

WOW, was I totally confused. I had no idea what TWITCH Even was. I didn't read much of the articles. All I saw was "Streaming Video games" .. I thought it was like Onlive. But now I find out it's just for watching people play video games. Oh this country is going to crap.

Ive seen more companies survive unscarred and to just keep doing what they do at MS than Google.

For better or worse, skype for example should have had some heavy MS oversight to fix their software.

As for twitch complementing YouTube.

Fast forward a few your and they're both YouTube, fast forward a year or less and you have to sign into twitch with your G+ account and use your real name. And any game that isn't safe for kids won't be allowed to stream

Again, I don't understand why G+ gets such bad press the vast majority of people who use Social Media have a facebook account with their real name, whats the difference? I know not everyone has FB etc I'm just saying, FB is acceptable... where is the difference? Maybe Its just me but I don't understand the issue (other than if you want to talk security) in terms of having one account to manage all. 

I don't get your last point about games that aren't safe for streaming, why would google restrict that? There is plenty adult content on YT?

Having a social network account doesn't mean you want to post YouTube or gaming streams with your own name, especially gaming streams since gaming handles IS your identity in gaming. No pro export gamers advertise or game under their real names.

I've never seen hawt big boobed girls play games on twitch, granted I never watched much twitch either. Granted even the few times I did watch twitch I went there for the games.

Yes, but is there anything stopping these people setting up a G+ account where the "real name" is JackFrags or PewDiePie etc? I mean they have YouTube accounts where that shows as their name etc so surely thats what they must do? I would imagine they would perhaps have their own FB/G+ account for their personal life and a FB/G+ account for their gaming persona? 

I understand having Social Media doesn't mean you want to post etc, but that just means there is an element to your account you don't use, no big deal. You're real name isn't going to be used on YouTube if you never post on it.

The fact that youtube/google flags accounts with fake names and locks them or forces name changes, no other than that, nothing...

 

Also having two g+ accounts is a terrible solution, since generally you want to stay signed in to the account you use, not you always have to keep sure you're signed in on the right account or risk mixing up your "lives".
