Live at the Budokan, Tokyo, April 25th 1979
I got an idea to tinker a bit with the Tokyo gig. This is my source http://www.queenzone.com/forums/1110600/announce-tokyo-1979-04-25-dvd.aspx
There are 2 versions. One is the full DVD. The other is a compressed H.264 MKV encode with only 1 audio stream. It is 1,06 GB which is almost 3 times smaller size than the whole DVD. And quality loss is very minimal (if any). It's exactly the same, only differences are that it is progressive unlike DVD and has slight artificial grain added, partly because I like it that way and partly because it would tone down compression artifacts if there are any. Notice that there's no added grain on the DVD. So you can download either this version or that version, that's up to you.
* Full Japanese TV broadcast enhanced (only video)
* Re-created song titles and credit texts (see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvfZUdrEA4U
* Motion menus
* Pittrek's audio merge as secondary audio stream

Duration: 32mn 21s
Bit rate mode: VBR (variable)
Bit rate: 6 467 Kbps
(I would have encoded it higher than that if I didn't need to include 2 PCM audio streams. But I think it's more or less OK with this bitrate, don't panic :-) )
Maximum bit rate: 6 800 Kbps
Resolution, aspect ratio, FPS: NTSC - 720x480, 4:3, 29.970 fps
Scan type, scan order: interlaced, top field first Screenshot comparison:
The first is "Before", 2nd is "After".
The MKV version looks exactly the same as the DVD of mine, but with 3% grain which I explained above.
You might notice that my version is 2 % "blurrier". That is because I tried to attempt to reduce the black outlines a bit. It overall makes it look bit softer, but cleaner and nicer, in my opinion.
These are resized. In full resolution they are available on Skydrive http://sdrv.ms/1dSH9uL Artwork:
I'm no designer so please experts excuse me :-)

Please don't re-compress or convert this. Otherwise this enhance is pointless.
Don't sell or trade this. It's made for fans and specifically for QueenZone.com. It's competely free.
If anyone is willing to create a torrent, feel free. I would do it myself, but my ports won't forward therefore I can't seed, therefore there's no use in creating a torrent.
Special thanks to Pittrek for various advices, help and providing the missing Tokyo footage.
Thanks to YourValentine for sharing the original source.
Please excuse me for writing so long, but I think this was all really important :-) DOWNLOAD: http://sdrv.ms/162maVA
There is also a torrent made by Bokkepoot. Scroll down the page for it.
You can also watch this on Youtube here http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLde9CB1OpQpG71gr7Dw4U0wGciOs2i4EZ
Please notice that the audio in Youtube version is slightly out of sync. It's not that way on the DVD.
