High Quality '90s video's
« on: March 28, 2017, 03:34:19 AM »
Hi all,

A few days ago I was in a record shop and saw a lot of U2 DVD's, for example: ZooTV Sydney, Popmart Mexico, Slane Castle. I almost decided to buy them all since youtube isn't the best quality on earth (for a phone it is most of the times decent but on the TV it is terrible). I thought it was just the lag of technology during that time, and that DVD is the best quality you can get. But then I saw a Joshua Tree Tour rehearsel on Youtube which was higher of quality than a Popmart video. In another thread on this forum I saw some photo's taken from the videoclip of Discotheque which was from high quality. So there has to be some good shots of the shows and videoclips I think.

I want to pay for those live shows (Zoo TV, Popmart) but only in very High Quality. Does someone know a way to get a good download of it? If there is no legal way to get it, it may be the 'less legal' way, too. ;)

I hope there's someone who can help me with this. Thanks!

Those original DVDs were shot on video, not film.  So they've aged BADLY.  I'm not sure there's anything out there that's better quality--at least not that I'm aware of.

Also correct.  It would be some major news if/when they make them available for download or as HD.

Well it would be great. I think there's better quality.

Other question. I'm from a generation with youtube amd HD-tv. DVD's are not comparable to HD. But if HD is a 10 and a good quality of Popmart Live in Mexico is a 5, what would the DVD be?
