    Hello my name is Jalen and I'm a personnel private collector of Jackson material and I own various rare old vhs rips of concert shows and news clips. Some of you may have received a message from me regarding I need help on restoring my rips. I don't own a laptop and I absolutely love editing and restoring but right now all I have is a phone so not much to offer while editing. I'm very private and am only posting this to see if anyone can actually help me. I don't have money sadly so idk if y'all charge. BUT If anyone can help me let me know....I'll try and download things and ss them so y'all can see for ywll self what need to be fixed but also none of my things can be leaked....too valuable and I spend literally EVERYDAY trying to get more footage so its hard trusting ppl.

    Let me know if anyone can help!

    Hello - your project sounds interesting. Might be better to post a short clip to see what might be possible,
    30 seconds would be enough. The most obvious thing to me in the above image is the Chroma noise,
    typical of VHS originated video

    Funny you mention add a video lol I'm cutting out a clip right now. But yea this I believe is from a DVD rip but originated from also I just got a new version which quality wise its better tho color wise it sucks.... This verisom the quality is lower but color is better if anything I rather get this version restored and maybe the next later. When the video gets done rendering I'll send a snippet also I'll send ss of the newer version to compare the quality.

    You'll need more than a phone.

    It's a big task, I don't think anyone would embark on such huge restoration project without expecting anything in return, Only specialized studio can help you with this and they will guarantee your footage rights not a VH member, Asking for help with conditions is kind of a slap on a face. Good luck on your interesting project, I like MJ too, I have his entire audio discography in lossless, I even have some rare 24bit DAT tapes. don't care too much for video.

    it's just audio. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Audio_Tape
    The video you posted has a lot of problems, it's dark and noisy - but those can be mitigated, somewhat.
    Bigger issues include the jerky movement, and the remnants of interlaced fields blended into the frame
    which can not cleanly be removed. All due to improper handling somewhere down the line

    Here is a quicker and easier way that you could have done to get your answer rather than posting and waiting.
