  1. Well, I d/l'ed a big movie off a torrent file. It is 1.60 GB and there are two files. VTS_01_1.VOB, and VTS_01_2.VOB. They are the ones I use to play the video. It works on both WMP and cineplayer. There are also 2 small IFO and and BUP files that I have no idea what they are for.

    Anyways, The quality is ok and all that. WMP tells me that the video size is 640x480 in properties. When I resize the movie screen and make it smaller, it is sharper. When I make it bigger, its more blurry and degraded, as you might expect.

    Well, I want to burn this movie to a DVD. Is there anything I can do to make it sharper at higher resolutions? I want it to be viewable on a tv screen. Not all blurry and garbled.

    Thanks.

    You can try lanczos resize, sharpen and deblocking filters with virtualdub and see how it looks like but if your source is very bad you can't do much.

    Download smart sharpen and deblocking filters from http://www.compression.ru/video/index_en.htm .

    No. Nothing can be done for this issue this time.
    Garbage in, garbage out.

  4. The .VOB files wont open in virtual dub. It says:

    MPEG Import Filter: invalid pack at position 3: marker bit not set; possibly MPEG-2 steam

    Whats wrong?

    You're mostly trying in vain. Filters, while they can help improve video, must stil have mildly decent source. Some things are too far gone, this sounds like one of them.

    The way I see it: filtering is an attempt to hide defects (bad exposure, colors, noise, etc), it doesn't really improve the picture.
