Windows 11 version 21H2: All the new features and changes 🚀 October release 📆

The world’s most popular desktop operating system is getting a major overhaul with the unveiling of Windows 11.

Much of the work is interface redesign rather than actual features, Windows 11 is more familiar than you may expect, despite some rearranging and updating the furniture. It borrows from Chrome OS, though you can still place app icons on the desktop background, which Google’s lightweight desktop OS doesn’t allow.

Microsoft will release Windows 11 starting October 5, 2021 on new machines. Updates to existing Windows 10 users should start coming at the start of 2022, and Microsoft hopes to have offered Windows 11 to every compatible machine by mid-2022.

At the time of writing this, the current Windows 11 version is 22000.160 released in August 2021.

Yes, I know! “Winter is coming…” it’s from a well  known TV series (aka Game of Thrones) which will have the last season in April 2019.

Development has only just started, so the changelog for this release is still pretty small. We expect more to be added over the next few weeks and months.

At the time of writing this, the current Windows 10 version is 1809 released in October 2018, which is similar to the Red Wedding, lots of bugs and blood :))

What is HLS M3U8 ? Learn how to download M3U8 video stream 🎞️ and how to download YouTube live event ✨?

HTTP Live Streaming (also known as HLS) is an HTTP-based media streaming communications protocol implemented by Apple Inc. as part of its QuickTime, Safari, OS X, and iOS software.

It resembles MPEG-DASH (MPD) in that it works by breaking the overall stream into a sequence of small HTTP-based file downloads, each download loading one short chunk of an overall potentially unbounded transport stream. As the stream is played, the client may select from a number of different alternate streams containing the same material encoded at a variety of data rates, allowing the streaming session to adapt to the available data rate. At the start of the streaming session, HLS downloads an extended M3U8 manifest playlist containing the metadata for the various sub-streams which are available.

What is MPEG-DASH 🎬? How to download MPD video files 📺?

Nowadays many sites start using the MPD manifest instead of well known M3U8 and F4M.

Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH), also known as MPEG-DASH,  is an adaptive bitrate streaming technique that enables high quality streaming of media content over the Internet delivered from conventional HTTP web servers.

The multimedia file is partitioned into one or more segments and delivered to a client using HTTP.  For the client, aka video player, to know each segment position, a media presentation description (MPD) file describes segment information: timing, URL, media characteristics like video resolution and bit rates.
