Christmas Night with the Stars - Hugh and I (Mini-episode) (BBC) 2015 RESTORED - VidFIRE(D) (7800kbps CBR PCM)


Series info:
Christmas Night with the Stars was the BBC's annual entertainment beanfeast, screened peak-time on Christmas night, in which many of its top stars appeared in especially made short (five to ten-minute versions - mini episodes) of their popular shows.

Download Christmas Night with the Stars - Hugh and I (Mini-episode) from here:

This, as-per-usual, for my files/uploads, needs to be watched back on something that'll display interlaced video, or one of the main reasons for the restoration (the VidFIRE), will be lost.

See below, for more details on what you need to do...:


If you're not going to watch this back on a proper CRT TV (remember those...), then use the following media player and settings:

VLC media player is an ideal candidate, if you plan to watch this back on an LCD or LED flat screen computer monitor.

Available here for Windows:

Or here for Mac OS X:

Once installed, and the video is playing back, hit Pause, then go up to the Menu > Video and change the following two default settings:

1. Video > Deinterlace > On
2. Video > Deinterlace mode > Linear or Yadif (2x)

Once those are set, then hit Play...

Enjoy... :wink:
