How does netflix manage to buffer in HD while it is playing a video. Also it would reduce quality when the internet connection gets slow !! While on youtube when you change quality, it just stops for a moment and then buffers in the same quality. But netflix keeps switching dynamically based on internet speed .. Genius. Anyone got the answer ?

There is no to "trick" or "fool" the viewing software, it detects the actual download speed and latency during streaming.

ocjp 6 — Feeding a person with food is a great thing in this world. Feeding the same person by transferring the knowledge is far more better thing. The reason is the amount of satisfaction which we get through food is of only one minute or two. But the satisfaction which we can get through the knowledge is of life long.
