East Rutherord (NJ) - June 22, 2001
U2rulesmyworld coments :
Video: Kevin(smokeboyvids, center), Brad(Eclipse, right)
Source: Hi8 clone(Kevin) and DV clone(Brad)
Mixing: U2rulesmyworld, Sony Vegas 7.0, aspect ratio 4:3
Divx Encoding: Dixv Author, avg bitrate 2700kbps vbr video, 224kbps mp3 audio.
This is an upgrade to the previously released mixes, this is sourced from clones of
the masters so picture quality is much clearer.
This was one of the better elevation shows, both performance and quality of recordings
It features an absolutle stunning version of Bullet, 1st ever performance of Wild Honey
as well as an impromtu rendition of In My Life(a Beatles Cover) and is a long set at 2h14m
This will play in VLC or in the Divx Player which is free at divx.com, I authored this using Divx Author and it has a menu and chapter system if played in the divx web player but the chapter points dont work properly and I could not figure out why(or get any help on their forums!!) SUPPOSEDLY if you burn this file to a blank dvd and have a divx dvd player then you should be able to play this on your TV with a menu and chapters, but i dont know since i dont have that.
About the Divx Codec: at 2700kbps you are getting better than mpeg2 dvd quality in a file 1/3 the size. Bottomline this is better quality and more easily stored on a HDD, you also get the full 720x480 picture although I did box out a portion of the top and bottom to letterbox it a little and cover the distortion that the Hi8 angle would create at the bottom of the picture.
