A short explanation of binary.

Upon reviewing the finished video I realized I made a mistake in some of my vocabulary. A byte can represent a number up to 255 but it can actually represent 256 different VALUES, as 0 is a value in and of itself. Rerecording and reanimating would be a painful process, so forgive me this mistake.

    I want to know why there is 1.1k dislikes
    I mean this explanation is just greater to me , and it seems the same for many others

  5. Ashton Drye on August 11, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    he is pronouncing the binary numbers wrong

  6. Viewer on August 11, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Your explanations are shit 😂
    Maybe u did represent the concepts but the explanation is very unclear 😃

    I just found this channel in search of how computers fundamentally work. And boy am I surprised this is the same guy who made those TF2 videos I watched. Small world

    reminds me of that Rush song …one zero zero one zero zero one SOS

    Many of us were first introduced to the powers of 2 through the "Inchworm" song.

    I wish I could show this video to The Count from Sesame Street. This is exactly the type of content he’s here for.

  14. Online Technology Today on August 11, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    A great overview for binary basics

  15. Trioner Expeliozias on August 11, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    Number In the thumbnail Is 43 btw.

  16. R e e s a on August 11, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Because they’re TR*NSPHOBIC

    OK maybe I’m not that funny

  17. LEO DEJANERO on August 11, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    It came from an African religion where they contact they’re god’s

  18. jerry calvert on August 11, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Too short. Keep going. We want more. Now I’m finally beginning to understand computers. Thank you for the uploads.

    Jesus is coming back very very soon please repent and turn to Him because He loves you and He will accept you. Let the Bible be your daily guide.

  20. jonathan cortez on August 11, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    Don’t get it.

  21. PatricioDeLaRosa on August 11, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    There are 10 types of people, those who understand binary and those who don’t

  22. Aaron Rotich on August 11, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    When I watch such videos. I can’t stop to think how smart the guys who created this are…

  23. Stephen Ferree on August 11, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Answer…. it is very very easy to electronically detect the difference between on and off and to build a circuit that can latch in an on or off state.

    From Nepal 🇳🇵🇳🇵🙏

  25. Curtis Warren BTW STOP BEGGING on August 11, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Because if they used other numbers a 2 wouldn’t activate god mode

  26. The Second Slit on August 11, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Best explanation ever. Period. Cheers !

  27. Howlid on August 11, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    I can’t believe my binary system said that N-Word.

  28. Siva Balan.P on August 11, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Sir uploading decimal,octal, hexadecimal

  29. E R on August 11, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Computers use 1s and 0s because computers are only as intelligent as the humans programming them…

    Say bye to this after the quantum processor. Bumblebee Man says, "No es bueno para Mr Spy! Ouch!"

  33. Ese Ukey on August 11, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Could explain it differently but this is very good.

  34. Vitor Cardoso on August 11, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    I had never understood the systems, 32, 64, etc. bits thing until now. Thank you very much.

    Eu amo a sua tela azul sem lógica de resposta Windows !
    (Argumento pessoal )
    Sistema original e hardware ok !
    Qual a resposta ?
    Não minta a resposta ou será corrigido!
    Vai passar vergonha!

  36. THOMAS VARGAS on August 11, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    they should have a’s and b’s and define them to be 1’s and 0’s for 1’s and 0’s are already defined to count, etc., rather a’s and b’s can be defined to produce 1 and 0 but also produce an answer when asked a question by defining the a’s and b’s to also hold language.. use those functions to phonetically deliver an answer tailored to the user’s personality. providing the 1 and 0 and also language in 2 separate but internetworked efficiencies.

  37. Mir Arifuddin Khan on August 11, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Not an easy way of explaining
    I didn’t liked it

  42. Poke Esnevon on August 11, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    If i take a 5ghz pc, it means it clocks 5.000.000.000 times between 0 and 1 in 1 second?

  43. kwissiekwissie on August 11, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    wow wow WOW. I know all this information but NEVER has it been explained so compact and clear as you did!!! #MyCompliments!
