Thread: help to clean up old videos
If they were originally recorded to VHS, then half of the original interlaced video information from those recordings has been removed by deinterlacing and saving in seriously lossy HD compression at half-image size. The original interlaced TV broadcast might have been interlaced 640x480 at 4:3 broadcast ratio, but the video is non-interlaced 352x240 at 2:3 aspect ratio. The audio is 44.1 KHz variable bitrate, which will be a problem in VirtualDub. Even after cleanup (which won't get very far after video has been mutilated to this extent), the best you can get is small frame playback for PC only.
You'll need more than one Avisynth script to do anything with this video; software can accomplish only so much with badly damaged sources. Even with pristine video there's no such thing as "one script" for any video. If that concept were plausible, you could copy any avisynth script found on any post in this forum and use it on your video. Obviously, you wouldn't want to do that.

Yes, I figured you probably meant 1-tb instead of 1gig.
The best you can do here with these videos is to remove some grain and noise with TemporalDegrain at default values. This is an .avs function, not a .dll plugin, but it requires a number of dependent plugins and functions that might not be worth the trouble of learning and downloading. Simple smoothers or plain-vanilla spatial filters will do little for you here. The main download page that lists requirements is here: http://avisynth.org/mediawiki/Temporal_Degrain
Also, the video appears to have been cropped to get a wide-screen image. That's a no-no, and is not the way it's done, not even for low-bitrate MPEG1/MPG4. The audio is non-standard as well, so there might be sync problems with extended playback times. So you are sort of stuck with small frame playback for PC-only; there is not enough bitrate here for resizing or full screen display, which will simply make the video look worse.Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things.

Since i can see noise patterns i say neat video will be your best friend for the next few days.
I just tried it, if you filter more on the high freqs (where noise is more apparent on the vid1 sample) and none or very low for the mid /low freqs, that should do it.
Is this it? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106154/
and if it is then maybe this is the solution

Take a close look at the website though. This isn't a proper retail DVD IMO. But yes, hopefully it's full res - or at least half res, rather than VCD!
