High bitrate HD Download

The RSS feed and API links for HD are 4000kbps, but the HD downloads on the website are 8000kbps. I don't see any way to get the higher bitrate HD video from the feeds/API or vice versa. Is this intentional?

I'd like a RSS feed for these video too!

Is there any suitable version for iOS? I am facing some iTunes error 9 while trying to install it. Please help me to fix it.

I am looking into getting this RSS feed upgraded; sorry for the trouble!

Just noticed my downloader grabbed a load of the 8000mbit videos! Thanks for sorting that.

One issue (maybe a blip?) is that the HD and the new HD8K RSS feeds both seem to be serving the 8k videos.

yeah, I came here because it looks like the RSS Feed for HD is picking up both!

Just wanted to say thanks for getting the 8000kbps RSS feeds up! As mentioned by others, currently there looks to be no difference between the HD and HD8k feeds, both are serving the _8000.mp4 files only.

Thanks for the note, I'll see if we can get this looked at.

@rorie: Just as a reminder, the HD feeds are still getting the 8000kbps videos.

@kamasamak this may have been resolved now. Since yesterday my RSS reader has redownloaded the 4000kbps versions of recent videos and the HD rss feeds (e.g. QL, haven't checked all) are showing the 4000.mp4 links, whilst the HD8k feed is showing the 8000.mp4 links as expected.

Now to decide which ones I really want. since the 8000kbps versions are 85%+ larger...

Yep, this looks good now. Thanks all!
