I registered with the forums just to talk about this issue. Ok first of all, not sure if this Scene is the leaders of Icefilms or some external controllers but I do have to ask no matter who they are how could it possibly be their choice to phase out AVI and implement MP4's? From first hand experience MP4s are total crap unless you download them which completely defeats the point of this entire website. If I wanted to download I would go back to torrents.
This is NOT the time to be making a major change with the format of videos on a streaming site that is already almost broken because of the hosting sites. In all honesty the choice that "The Scene" made was completely retarded. How about we fix the current problems before creating more?
Finally, no matter who "Decree's" this decision the internet is more of a sovereign democracy than any form of government on this planet which is why so many people have been fighting for it. No one makes our decisions for us, if we want to use AVI because its smaller in size, easy to stream, and most highly used format then anyone that says otherwise can honestly go get bent. Please no one take offense to this, I am speaking my most honest opinion here. The masses say MP4 doesn't work...so don't be ignorant...stick with what works and don't implement a broken system.
