Sprint problems

The quest to remove Commie cast revealed Sprint has a transparent proxy transcode all the jpgs at the network level to reduce the file size. The quality reduction is 75%. The same result happens whether you try a proxy server or your own private server.

It is possible to bypass the processing, using https, but very few servers actually support https. Proxy servers that advertize anonymous browsing don't actually support https or don't support wget.

Looks like timelapse webcam movies are going to be the next victim of the recession. With the amount of outrage over Commie throttling Netflix or Netflix charging penalties to Commie customers, people only get outraged when they're told to & Sprint degrading jpg images is just an area they haven't been told to be outraged over.
