    I’ve never heard hexadecimal sequences explained so clearly and succinctly. Excellent, well done.

    Dude, I can use this explanation for references in the future, or maybe I don't need to, cause everything is clear to me now.
    Man, this video is so good .

    The simplest form of converting into binary format ever seen. Thank you

    Very clear and informational video. Nice!

    I am currently studying this exact subject and I got stuck for understanding some points. I came to this channel immediately and I knew this video will get me to those points I'm missing.

    I think you are complicating hexadecimal. Instead of using a chart beyond 9, just say it's 16 *places* with any arithmetics being the identical to decimal. You can even show a simple addition as an example and move on from there. It's *exactly* like binary but increasing place holders to 16 in hex, instead of *removing* place holders to 2 in binary. Regards.

    I had not done IPv4 Binary conversion in years. Thanks for explaining the IPv6 conversion.

    oh my goodness! i actually understood this explanation in under a minute! do I have your permission to put this video in my phone to watch over & over? GOD bless you!

    What if there is no IPv6. Could we cannot use the internet anymore?

  11. Spaggelaar

    This was the best explanation about ipv6 I've seen! Thank you so much 😁

  12. Omega1andonly

    Thank you so much guys, I was struggling with just understanding Binary code in general but after watching this video I now understand binary, IPv4 & IPv6

    Fascinating insight into this subject! I had zero idea. Question: I’m not at my computer right now, but I believe my wireless router (Asus XT8 mesh) is set for “IPv4”. Can I simply check “IPv6” to migrate to the newer protocol? If not, what is the process? I’m assuming my ISP must support IPv6, and I know that my wireless router does. Also, does each of my wireless devices need to support IPv6? If not, assuming my whole network must remain with IPv4? If so, is this transfer automatic once I select IPv6? Or would I be opening up a can of worms by switching over? Thank you for doing such a great job!

    I HAVE A QUESTION @PowerCert Animated Videos:

    Based on your other video about DNS server, the DNS server resolves the domain name to numbers because computers/network does not read names. And those converted numbers are the IP addresses. And now based on this video, you mentioned that computers/networks does not read IP address and it needs to be converted first to binary format?


  20. Your videos are great they're educating, useful, interesting and just everything you need. I also like that you get straight to the point and don't stretch your videos out for extra ad revenue like a lot of YouTubers out there do and i wouldn't even be mad if you did do that because you deserve that extra bit of income because you're real and you don't clickbait.

    It's incredible – I learn more in a 5 year old, 10 minute YouTube video, than I do in a week's worth of my convoluted, "updated" college networking course.

    Thanks for the clear, concise explanation.

  22. I normally hate even samllest maths like these. But you presented the whole concept with amazing clarity and simplicity. Thank you so much for that. Wish you'd make a seperate video about number systems and conversions.

  23. Abiola Osota

    Please how do you make all this animation, I want to learn it. The best explanation ever

  24. Jared Parody

    I have learnt more from this guy in a few hours than my teachers in almost a year

  25. AMISHA negi

    Nice explaination 💗💗
    Now it's easy for me to understand 💓
    Huge respect for your initiative
    God bless you to help us with your great idea of explaining

  26. Tony D

    So someone can come along and copy all the functionality of ipv6, include backward functionality and copy right it. nice work!

  27. hul

    The explanations in all your videos are so good!
