Halo 2 Cutscene Library

In mid-December, 2004, Sniper 058 began sending in video-captured cutscenes from Halo 2. We'd been meaning to build a library of cutscenes for years - the Halo collection will eventually go online, but having a fan do most of the work goes a long way to getting new sections built here at HBO. We're going to add new cutscenes, in the order they appear in the game, every few days (depending on how bandwidth holds out). There will always be 4 flavors of each cutscene; a large (640x360) and small (320x180) version of both QuickTime and WMP9 encodings. Grab the one that best fits your situation. (There will also be a pair of download links for each vid, because bandwidth is never infinite. Please be gentle.)

Starting in early March, 2008, we've added HD versions of these cutscenes, courtesy of HaLo2FrEeEk, of Infectionist Machinima.

Update March 10, 2008:All of the 640x360 cutscenes have ALSO been re-encoded to a much higher quality, thanks to HaLo2FrEeEk. Enjoy!
