But: you said the original video is FLV. Some FLV files are actually MP4 streams embedded on FLV containers. I know a trick to extract the original stream without re-encoding. If it was ripped from Youtube then that FLV file is 100% a MP4 file undercover.

I hope you didn't delete the original FLV file. To extract the MP4 file follow these steps:
- Install VLC Player and run it.
- Go to Media -> Convert/Save. It will open a window. Click Add... to add the FLV file and then Convert/Save button.
- It will open another window. Click Browse... and select the destination folder and a new filename (add manually the .mp4 extension).
- Click the first button (with tools icon) near Video-H.264+AAC (MP4).
- It will open another window. At Video codec tab check Keep original video track and at Audio codec tab check Keep original audio track and click Save.
- Finally click Start button. Wait until the video is copied (until the word Streaming disappear from window title; this is important). Check the result (esp. the video to be in sync with audio).

That's it. You'll get a MP4 file without losing any quality. Please upload the result.

PS: if you don't want to extract the MP4 file, please upload also the original file. Xvid is weaker than MP4 AVC.


Yeah I already have VLC installed, I could see that the video format was MP4 when I opened it up in there to check the format and resolution etc but I wasn't aware there was a way of just changing the container. I followed your instructions but the exported video when you open it up is jumpy (constantly jumping backwards and forwards a few frames like some kind of trippy nightmare in quicktime - In VLC for some reason it doesn't jump as badly but it doesn't look right either), I don't know if that has something to do with the fact it was saved from a stream so there's no real defined beginning and end to the original video file

Please send to me the original FLV file (PM). I will fix it.

It's a kids show, I don't know exactly what you're expecting from it... it's just a laugh isn't it

When Ladytron added a video of them doing their song on Yo Gabba Gabba to Youtube they said they didn't write it, so I don't know how much input the bands actually have in the writing process.

I was being cheeky. The Gabba mascots were running around Coachella 2010 so I've had some run ins with them. They jumped onstage during some acts and gatecrashed the DEVO autograph signing.

Chromeo told a funny story where they added that song to their live and said to themselves after the second outing "what the he'll in this doing in our setlist".

This would be their seconds kids show appearance. Any Pancake Mountain clips still kicking around?

Fantastic. Thanks for posting this! I'm running it using VLC on my Mac since QuickTime was giving me trouble.

Band only version of Wanderlust from Philadelphia. 18:40-19:55

It got dropped in Florida 9-27 so this may be an one-off version.

It looks like it's going to only be broadcast on AXS TV, which is apparently available in the US, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean... So looks like I won't be able to record it unless I'm lucky enough to find a stream of the channel somewhere and work out how to record it, which seems unlikely.

I'm relying on someone else being subscribed to it and recording it... anyone?

Metric: Synthetica Live from the Ogden Theatre
As atmospheric as they are eclectic, the sound of Metric encompasses everything from synth-pop, new wave, dance, electronica and rock. Innovative, modern and supremely talented, the Canadian four-piece brings their dynamic and seductive energy to the Ogden Theatre in Denver, Colo.

Now watching the concert uploaded by Catatonic. Empty is fucking amazing! :)

PS: I'll try later to fix the FLV file. It seems the problem could be the width of 854 pixels which is not divisible with 16 or at least 8 (it should be at least 856; this is the way the video codecs work best). That could generate the "jumpy" effect that Catatonic mentioned before.

Quick question: anyone knows what is the second keyboard of Emily (near Pro One)?
