The original video was uploaded here - http://www.queenzone.com/forums/1423475/1978-04-20-rotterdam-ahoy.aspx

 I didn't want to do anything with it but when I did some tests I found it's a very good video for stabilizing. And thought - why not?

 There is some cropping due to stabilizing but I believe none of the important information in the shot is lost.
 I also reduced the heavy grain and removed the duplicates and made it real 25 FPS with interpolation so that it looks a bit smoother in motion.

 What I ended up with I believe is almost as good as a pro video now. Maybe not really, but now it looks smoother and more steady and a bit cleaner. Some of you might prefer the original though - it looks more like a handheld camera and makes you think you're there, it's more raw (obviously).
 This is a slightly different representation of this amazing super 8 mm source. I hope you will find it as a good alternative.

The grain is still there although it's not nearly as strong. The youtube video is not an accurate representation due to compression.

Thank you Chief for another carefully processed video.
I only watched the original one several days ago and here you present us with a more stabilized version already.
I admire your passion and your skills in this fields, I'm lucky to benefit by it.

By the way, I took a look at the 2 youtubes in your signature, and they are beautiful.
Thanks for letting me appreciate more of Queen's music.

It's exactly the same. VLC doesn't display it correctly.
For some reason there are glitches with MPEG-2 files in VLC, for example Antiden's files which skip and according to VLC run about 5 seconds.

Both VLC AND format factory are showing your mkv as 7.02 but the original vob share was 6:48

The original share was 7:03. My version has only lost 1 second somewhere. I didn't make it nor slower nor faster nor cut anything. VLC and format factory are wrong, sorry.

Thanks, I'm sorry you are correct.
The problem goes if I demux the original vob and make it again (it then shows 7.03)
I think you clipped the last second from the original file (with white screen and red line) which is why your mkv is 7.02

And this, folks, is a textbook example of why things need to be shared.

When put into the right hands, documents of music history can be enjoyed as they were intended to be.

Thanks for the hard work of everyone involved.



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

Thank you Chief, this was my first ever Queen concert I saw.....I went for the group, but one bloke had mesmerized the whole evening: Brian May. Those effects, the sounds, had that night a feeling which lays beyond any belief. Even the word awesome doens't capture my feelings. Again thank you!
