Outragously dishonest HD

I am normally a HD whore and download the highest quality versions of all scenes that I can get my hands on. This is usually simple, when a scene is marked HD it is, if not HD source, at least high quality. At BangBros, however, I am dumbfounded by the dishonest use of HD labeling.

Every scene in the network has a download labeled HD. While technically they are HD videos being 1280 x 720 or 1024 x 768 @ 3 MBPS the reality is very, very different. For all of the older scenes that were not filmed in HD or no HD source is available they have just taken the god awful 320 x 240 WMV files and re-encoded them to h264 HD resolution. As anyone who knows anything about video encoding will tell you, you put garbage in, you get garbage out. So what does this mean? Well, not only does the HD video look awful, but some scenes are up to 2GB in size! The "HD" video looks no better than downloading the WMV, which is 10 times smaller by the way, and watching it full screen which looks so bad it makes my eyes bleed. To make matters EVEN worse, there is no way of knowing what videos truly are HD and which videos are these hack job re-encodes.

Bottom line:
WMV SD - 200 MB - Looks awful
MP4 HD - 1300 MB - Looks even worse, wasted 1100 MB bandwidth.

I have seen dishonest practices but this really does take the piss. I have lost confidence in them as I cant download the scenes with confidence that the quality will be good without wasting massive amounts of bandwidth. With other networks like Porn Pros, Brazzers or Naughty America producing similar content without the HD lie I wont be keeping a membership here and I urge anyone that cares about quality to think twice before joining. I used to like BangBros, this is such a huge disappointment :(

messmer (137) Hi BadMrFrosty. I agree when it comes to the poor quality of some of those remastered old videos. I usually streamed them first and if they didn't look good then I just didn't bother downloading. Saves a lot of aggravation and bandwidth.
