Frequently Asked Questions
How is LBRY different from a toaster?
Toasters transfer heat via radiative EM waves in the infrared spectrum to brown bread and make people happy.
LBRY transfers data via EM waves in the infrared spectrum* to deliver content and make people happy.
LBRY is also brave and little. So we're basically, fundamentally the same as a toaster.
*Assumes fiber-optic transmission.
There happen to be a lot of technological advancements that have happened to toasters. These scientific feats apply to LBRY, as well.
Properly-applied multithreading has allowed the distribution of workloads in LBRY, freeing up time that could have been spent waiting for required actions.
LBRY can service many forms of data, such as videos, pictures, and sourdough.
In this day and age of cool acronyms (such as IEEE 802.11ax) and now-common internet integration into devices, LBRY too has joined the crowd. TLNI (Toaster-Level Network Integration) technology has been fused with LBRY, permitting speeds at least as fast as your dial-up modem.
Proprietary toasters may try to limit what you can put in them and your ability to look into the toaster's operation. LBRY is a different kind of toaster. Its full source code is available online at its GitHub repos.
Lightweight versions of TLNI and LBRY have been made and ported to Android. Take LBRY on the go!
