I finally got around to reworking some of the videos that I had removed from an old channel. The motivation behind this is simple. At the moment, youtube is ridden with outrageously overfiltered, badly upscaled and absolutely ruined video recordings. I for the life of me cannot comprehend why somebody would give them such aggressive treatment. Many of the original bootlegs/broadcasts were highly amateur recordings to begin with, so if anybody takes up the task of working on the improvements, then at least do a decent job of it. That's why we need to settle this once and for all. I will try to post updates to this thread regularly.
The first one will be the TV broadcast of the Moscow gig. Watch in 1080p for best results. I applied AI enhancer with a fine tuning option to carefully get rid of all the noise and added the improved soundtrack.
Unfortunately, youtube still added a little bit of compression. I could not defeat it no matter how high I tried to set the bitrate to (the file I uploaded was about 50gb with a bitrate of 50 mbits). I've tried making comparisons between various bitrates to see how to cheat the compression, but even raw video format of 100 mbits did not resolve it. The results were always the same. So I'll copy the originals into the the database for preservation purposes and yt is going to be the next best thing for instant viewing.
More videos will be coming soon...
