The Brighton Centre
lineage (to the best of my knowledge):
DV camera > DV cassettes > PC > DVD
I acquired this DVD through a ‘trade’, but the authoring was (IMHO!) awful. I therefore reauthored
it using TMPGEnc DVD Author 188.8.131.52 (chapters + animated menu).
The aspect ratio is widescreen although this was not embedded into the original encodes, you’ll have to adjust that on playback.
In extracting the video and audio from the original disc it became apparent that there are a couple of glitches where
a few frames were somehow dropped, I guess during the original authoring from the look of the original VOBS.
I have fixed these as best as I could, but they are (a little) noticeable during ‘Anthem’ and ‘I Tried To Leave You’.
Also the guy who recorded this missed the very opening of ‘I’m Your Man’, likely because he was changing the tape.
That said, he did a pretty good job encoding the video and audio from the tapes.
Artwork (DVD case cover) is included.
