I propose that the new version be added to message 1 of this thread in place of the interim cleaned up video there.

HAHA! Love the audio! ;D

Ok, so this coming week, we tie this all up. Article and all!

Wait!  The audio still doesn't work!

EDIT:  And an obvious mega attaboy to all.   When Elon said "we're going to crowd source it", I don't think he imagined this kind of an effort or result.

Fixed! I found a way to get the audio out of the data!



WHAT IS THIS??  NSF isn't 60 Minutes. ;D

God that sound is hilarious!

Before I look, please tell me you're going "woooooooooosh  ploink" into your microphone!

EDIT:  Yes Yes Yes!    Oh lord please let some news channel pick this up.

EDIT2:  Am I imagining it or are there two (2) audio tracks in there?!   Hat's off to you, sir!

If you compare the current version to the first version, it's literally incredible, as in lacking in credibility.  If it weren't for this thread and the continuing progress it documents, one could be excused for thinking you all had CGI'd the current version, given the original was just this side of nothing.

Astonishing work all.

This made my day.  A glorious capstone to all the work done restoring the visuals.  :D 

I agree, we've done as much as humanly possible to restore this thing.  I'll always see the little things that could still be improved on with a few hours of work... each, but I am perfectly content to let them be considering they're not notable compared to the unfixable things.  :)

Astounding work. This effort deserves widespread recognition. In the field of A/V digital repair, I reckon it will be seen as a notable achievement. That it was a collaborative, crowd-sourced project, involving people from all over the U.S. and beyond, is another intriguing aspect of the work. I hope that Elon flies you all to Hawthorne for a private tour of the rocket factory and a well-deserved party. Bravo!

Heh, of course you can.  It's like SwissCheese up there going "Wait, frame 201 is wrong"...

The level of intimacy you have to achieve with a video clip in order for that sentence to even be possible is absolutely mind boggling.

If this video was somehow lost today, I bet you guys can re-create it from memory.

Wow! Absolutely amazing what has been achieved here!
And so proud to be a (small) part of this group effort!
Kudos to all!

Can someone please tell Elon he can launch OG2 now?

Maybe there is some substance to this 'crowd-sourcing' thing...
Impressive beyond belief!
You, all.

What everyone has already said, ++.

This thread has perhaps the greatest signal/noise I've seen on an open, public forum. It's a shining example of the 'Web at its very best.

Kudos to all.

Chris and others.... if I may, I'd like to direct attention to a lovely video back at reply #373, which is a very accessible 10-min. explanation of MPEG format, compression, macroblocks, etc.  I think it is good foundation. Helped me understand, anyway.

Great reference. Hunted it down and quoted it:
Interesting video about how MPEG works...

Hopefully you've seen them already, but if not, the gif reconstructions of how the frames were repaired are beautiful.  :)

The second is clearly the more dramatic for one like myself who watch (in amazement) from the sidelines.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaamn. That second one is epic. ;D

Tonight I'll probably be looking for some of these in reduced size, 350 pixel width for the article. I'll let you all know.

The YouTube videos released first by SpaceX seem to contain a longer sequence or are not exactly synchronized with the ts files they provided (at least their "raw" video). Here are both ts files provided by SpaceX converted into mp4 videos, so everybody can compare them to what we achieved ;)

Have you seen the "last progress report" page in the wiki?  Feel free to grab anything you need from there for the article :)
