compressing encrypted videos

  • I understand that opera achieves video compression ( youtube/netflix) by taking advantage of ABR streaming philosophy.
    It is also mentioned that encrypted traffic is not taken through opera servers.
    But atleast the initial ssl handshake messages has to be taken to opera server to detect if it is youtube/netflix video. isn't this correct?

  • not just ssl handshake messages.you need to decrypt the http get request to detect if it is youtube/netflix

  • I guess that if the url is a https one then it's not handle by Turbo, so it never goes through Opera servers.
