    What do you mean? It's YT and 128kbps lossy compression for audio, best vid is 480p. Neither of this is good quality.

    You'll never download this with good quality since the original is of bad quality at 480p.

    Why would you worry about quality in a short tutorial on how to make the sound yourself? The only thing you need to see is the text, the sound you can make in less than a minute.

    Edit: Take any synth, create a 100Hz sinewave, add a pitch envelope (exponential) going an octave down. Add a volume envelope to shorten the sound and have it fade out. Distort to taste. After the distortion, add a lowpass filter with an envelope on the cutoff, quickly going down. Automate volume on the final result as needed. You don't need to download the video and use the sound as a sample, it'll be quicker to create it yourself, and maybe you'll even learn something that way.

    Thanks but still look very bad, not like on yt.
    :D You missunderstood me. I know yt quality is suck and 480p has 128kbps audio.
    These screenshots demonstrated video which I want download.
    First one on yt is super clear and looks good.
    Second one which I download is blurred and looks very unclear.
    Third one. Wtf? File is two times bigger but looks awful.
    I would like download video which looks clear.
    Maybe reason of this is coding/decoding of video and after download looks nasty instead of clear like on youtube.

    Because first time i met with something like this (video quality problem). This is very interesting and I would like to know why this happen. Maybe I learn something new etc. :wink:

    Ps. I know it's easy and I doesn't need this vid but I like collecting old trashy videos about music production and other stuff like this.
    I have a lot of inspiration from it.

    With WMP in full screen mode they look the same.
    In Media Player Classic is a sharpening shader active, which looks a bit worse in this case.

    I have this on fullscreen in WMP and looks terrible, so it's something wrong with my computer:

    Ok. So my PC is ok :thumbsup:

    3 people with same issue. Interesting. There is something in this video. Codec makes jiggly edges and other unecessary stuff I think but why and how to fix it?

    I try to give an unscientific explanation:
    Youtube has continuously changed the encoding specs since it opened, there are probably more "downloadable" codecs and others that are less likely: The video is from 2010 so really loooong long ago.


    I downloaded the video with Jdownloader, it rip from site with no transcoding: guaranteed from JD forum:
