So sometime back in late summer (August probably) I messed with NIH video from the Absolute Greatest online stream.

I didn't really think it's worth to touch it so I forgot about it. Today Nitroboy told me it would be a good idea to do something with it and I remembered I had already done some encodes months ago.

So, since I had some spare time I decided I'd finish it off, remove the logo from the Japanese source (I didn't use the one I shared here a long time ago since now I can do better) and I made the Japanese source look almost the same in colours as the online stream.

So I merged them together. I wish I could have taken more footage from the Japanese source which is superior due to better compression compared to the online source, but unfortunately most of the time there are some Japanese texts on screen, so I only used the parts where they are not present, which is approximately 1 minute in total.

Also, I added Pittrek's audio from "1979-12-26; London (Pitrek Best Of The Best)" compilation as the first audio track and the original Absolute Greatest online audio stream as the 2nd track. Choose which one you prefer.

While it's true that I lost a ton of detail, I also lost a ton of bad pixels :)
It still doesn't look pretty in motion though (it looks smeared out in places), but unfortunately there's nothing that can be done about that :(

I wouldn't claim this is a definitive version, but a good alternative perhaps yes. You can always go back to the old VHS source if you want :)

Brilliant! You could work for Queen - clean Hammersmith 79 up for release. :)

Thanks, and I believe that in the slower and darker shots (like Freddie's improv with the audience), it looks absolutely perfect.

I downloaded all the Absolute Greatest Hits bonus videos at the time from QOL. At that time, I used realplayer download and the files were .flv files. It was shared here at that time but the thread was deleted due to it being official.

If there is interest, I can upload all the 13 videos again in a new thread. Just bear in mind they are .flv files.

Man, that's just awesome. Great clean up job.

I'd kill to see the whole show in this quality. It'd rival the Rainbow DVD for sure.

Can you search the ones uploaded in QueenHub, and see if your videos have the same quality?

Video filtering, I guess :)

Deblocking, denoising etc.

Oh yes, this show cleaned up like Rainbow (both audio and video) would be an absolute toprelease. Actually, it's something which is long overdue...
Apparently they have found the multi track in recent years so... Maybe the next project. I really do hope so because there's no video of Freddie in better voice than Hammy '79.

In a way they have too much stuff from 1979 :-) Should they include Hammy in "the" Live Killers box?? It's a different tour...

Fantastic job, this definitely deserves a stand alone release and if they have found the multi track then bring it on, always loved this show and this era of the band!

Technically, the Crazy Tour was just the British leg of the Jazz Tour.

Unfortunately it won't play on my phone. Downloaded it from mega but won't play. Is it on YouTube anywhere. Love this concert and would love to see this new edit.

Is there no chance you can play this on computer? Perhaps you can somehow change the file extension from MKV to MP4 so that your phone would recognize it?

Anyway, I did upload this on youtube but a lot of quality has gone due to youtube compression.
