Many recent (July-August 2013) Prelinger uploads have had bad video defects (very bad "blocking" in the video that comes and goes).

example:

has this problem, not all the time, but it comes and goes throughout. Please look for this and fix it. Thanks.

I thought this was a deliberate decision to keep bandwidth low, but it's cool that it's going to be fixed. Now, getting the interlacing/pulldown stuff in order would be a REAL treat - but there are so many hundreds of uploads afflicted with those problems, it probably wouldn't be practical to fix.

The most recent batch, like American Look, have a nice, easy to remove pulldown! Quality is terrific now for that title, despite cropping it from it's original super-wide format. You will have to use "remove advance pulldown" in After Effects to get nice 24fps footage!

After a few hundred disappointments, I hadn't tried the most recent few week's uploads for frame breakouts. I just loaded up SHOTGUN, and damned if it doesn't de-interlace properly. Thanks! I wonder how far back to properly interlaced files go...

Pretty far back actually! Very encouraging indeed!
