WMV forever!!!

Today 7may2010, I noticed that those responsible for the site aim suspendthe videos in MPG. So far so good, but say they think of doing the same with WMV in the future. The WMV has almost the same quality as MP4 HQ and is smaller. MP4 these are good, but for now be run with quality in Windows Media Player. Wish to comment there on the abby, but wanted an opinion from our friend Sue-ann. Please Sue.

Gazette Risque (55) That would be a major inconvenience! Especially for those technically challenged. Anyone with a windows PC is able to play WMV.

Also, I just prefer WMV when it comes down to HD. It's easier to convert to other formats when you want to put it on your phone, game console or whatever. And as a bonus, WMV is one of the few things that play perfectly on xbox apparently.

It will be a sad day on abbywinters when this will become a reality.

Thanks for the heads up!

Hi Magman. Thanks for the reply;) I think they just want to cancel the MPG, sure why this is much bigger and with less quality, but what worried me was that the team mentioned the WMV to a future analysis.
MP4 HD and HQ are very good, but I see no need to speculate a recession WMV.

Garion Hall here, CEO of abbywinters.com. We are indeed looking at discontinuing MPG videos, but at this stage, we're still gathering feedback from our members. MPG is a particularly bad format in many ways, and only has one minor redeeming feature, AND causes us some technical headaches on our back end. If MPG is hugely popular, we'll deal with the problem, but if it turns out few people use MPG, it's a candidate for discontinuing.

We regularly look at all the formats we offer, consider what other sites are doing, what the adult industry trends are, what the internet trends are, what our customers tell us they want, and what our business capacities are.

WMV is technically "next on our list" (as in, it's the next-oldest, and second-worst format we offer). We use WMV9 at the moment, which is not an especially good codec, but is quite popular. It's unlikely we'd stop WMV9 any time in the next 12 months, but it is safe to say, WMV9 is not going to be around forever. WMV10 has some significant improvements, for example, and HTML5 is also becoming an increasingly strong candidate (and necessary if we want to have our customers view our site on Apple devices, whihc we do).

So, no one is "losing" anything - no need to panic! If you're an AW members, please participate on our furums, so you can be sure your opinion is heard.

SueAnn (In-Active) Hi Heitorcontrol!

I'm echoing Garion's comments - The primary discussion regards MPG so WMV is quite safe right now :)

Thanks for the information Garion.
MPG has to stop even, because it is large and of poor quality. I usually download in MP4 HQ (very good) and MP4 HD (the best, incredible image) but sometimes I get down into WMV. I think he should stay longer, but obviously I know that any change is for the better.

The new look of the site was very good!

Thanks again :)
