Google will, on this Tuesday, update is¬†search algorithm to¬†give higher rankings to mobile ready or responsive websites.
This on a early stage will affect only results on mobile searchs and will have a significant impact in search results.
I’m gonna let you guys some notes about video convertion on our production server.¬†Its a small server with one CPU, 512Mb of RAM running Ubuntu 13.04 / Linux 3.8.0-19-generic x86_64, with SSD disk.
The video is from Catie Minx, from the video gallery Car Fun. Thanks Mutt.
Its a video with the duration of 18 minutes and 22 seconds and a resolution of 640*480.
Without CPU limit
It took 20 minutes to convert from WVM to MP4 without loosing quality. (100%)
It took¬†14 minutes¬†to convert¬†from WMV to OGV¬†without loosing quality. (70%)
It took 80 minutes to convert from¬†WMV¬†to¬†WEBM¬†without loosing quality. (300%)
Since OGV is supported by the same browsers that WEBM we won’t offer webm on the CMS.
From a huge list of CDN providers you will have to choose your¬†wisely.
Basically there are two conditions on this mathematic equation – edges and prices -.
Your provider’s edges should be basically only near your visitors and/or clients. The more edges the CDN has, normally the more expensive it will be. So if your clients are 80% from the USA you should basically chose a provider with his networks oriented to USA. Why should you choose one with a well structured networks world wide? this will¬†affect the prices of the CDN and you wont need it.
This way you will need to search for the one that has more edges near your clients and not world wide.
One of our friends is facing a HUGE problem at this moment.
His server had some kind of problem and he lost the content of his servers and his hosting company is having some troubles restoring the backups…
In the next version, we will introduce a automatic-backup solution that, has a GOOD backup should be, isn’t on the same physical place that your server is and will use TOP-NOCH hosting company.
