Re: Amazon streaming now unwatchable - Time Warner limiting???

said by Stacy:

Amazon did have a Netflix outage on Christmas Day. They said it didn't effect Amazon Instant Video but maybe the issues are migrating?

Since Amazon and Netflix are different CDNs I'm not sure that that is relevant.

:

Because Netflix utilizes Amazon's CDN to help deliver content to their customers? Which I admit is strange considering how much they compete with each other in the market for streaming video.

Netflix uses Limelight and L3. Amazon has its own CDN - different CDN?

Thank you for that. I thought Netflix uses someone else - remember the hoohah about Comcast and the L3 and Tata links and blaming netflix.

It does seem odd Amazon would host Netlfix content. I have a 768K line in a cabin - Netflix streams to the Roku, but Amazon prime stalls and buffers.

I would have thought from that informal observation that Amazon was a different CDN than Amazon - perhaps the Netflix streams are VC1 (I am pretty sure they are since that's the default on the Roku) where Amazon is using a higher bit rate codec?
