Ran across this. Pretty neat to see how each generation compounds time-base errors to the point that the video is no longer stable. It would be interesting to see a side by side comparison of this with a time-base corrector in the chain.

NICE LINK! Thanks for sharing that.
I need to repeat those tests.
Not sure that I have a video of a guy getting punched in the face, however!

We do have a nice stack of "crap videos" on two spindles, however, that serve as the basis for upcoming content -- stuff that's been planned for probably 5 years now, but just didn't ever get done. Now it will get done!

Some of them are those eBay/ioffer type bootlegs recorded off TV, obviously copied over and over from tape to tape for many years amongst underground collectors, and then dumped to DVDs. It's just dreadful material, and I can't see how anybody would want to punish their eyes and ears with this putrid crap, much less think it's worth selling. It's unwatchable!
