Being serious.

So going by the rumor. The OS has 750 megabytes of RAM and one cpu core available.
Could that be the restraint? Could it be because of portability? Why? Also can we upload to YouTube?

The Tegra X1 can natively encode h264 compressed video (and h265 too), so 30 seconds of footage is going to take very little RAM and practically no CPU usage.

You know what you're right. I forgot the GPU has a built-in encoding/decoding feature. Maybe they do this for storage constraints?

I figure that could be one possibility. Most Facebook and Twitter videos are 30 seconds. But gamers stream and upload 10 minutes to a hour video.

Probably has something to do with storage limits on the Switch.

Because you bought a an underpowered console.

The resources are needed elsewhere and them adding more than that would affect other functions.

Exactly.

You should take my posts more seriously since I own one.

It's a very weak console. I use it when there's absolutely nothing else to play on PC/PS4/Xbone/3ds

Ah, incompetence and jealousy, that a device like the Switch is doing this natively via Tegra X1 hardware that isn't taking away from anything. And here I thought you were simply trolling.
