Video Feeds to be Consolidated for All TWiT.tv Podcasts
Over the next few months, we plan to discontinue Video LO and Video HI formats for all of our podcasts, so each podcast has a single video feed — HD — in addition to audio/MP3.
With the wide availability of broadband Internet, we are finding that fewer people subscribe to the lower resolution video feeds. In line with that trend, we discontinued the Video LO and Video HI formats for two feeds in March — Radio Leo and All TWiT.tv Shows. You can read more about it on this past blog post.
Recently, we expanded the change to our short-format shows, including Ask The Tech Guy, Hands-On Photography, and Hands-On Tech; plus TWiT News, TWiT Events, and TWiT Bits. The remaining TWiT podcasts will follow suit over the next few months.
If you are subscribed to the LO or HI video formats, your podcatcher will automatically redirect to the HD video feed so you won't need to take any action.
New shows that began in 2020 launched with audio and HD video versions only. TWiT is unique within the podcast industry since we produce video versions; even so, 80% of our downloads are audio. Consolidating video formats helps us streamline operations and continue to improve your listening and viewing experience.
