Default Any quality copies of 1993 SNL Cherub Rock performance out there?

I noticed that the only YouTube copy (which was terrible quality) is now gone because the person closed their account (why would you do that, person?).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mztj...ature=youtu.be

I have a copy of it, but I think that it's worse than the YouTube version was due to low FPS and lo-fi sound. But its picture quality suggests to me that it was sourced from a higher quality video than the now-gone YouTube copy.

You can download my copy of it here:

https://mega.nz/#!8htx3aAC!tOX75RQls...8HLLZXBBV8ecEQ

Does anybody have a higher quality version, though - of Cherub Rock or / and the rest of the SNL performance?

Could have sworn I had an MPEG of that from the good ol Kazaa/Limewire days... but I don't. Only have the Today, and it's a 33MB MPEG that's pretty shitty looking, albeit decent sounding.

Groovy. That sounds promising.

PM sent. Or maybe post a download link here if that's OK with the rules and all and you're into it.

SP was not in any of the sketched but a Siamese Dream poster was featured in the background of one.

I found a torrent of a VHS transfer of the SNL show. Can get it here:

https://mega.nz/#!NIwyRKDJ!upelGyBCO...iPdRWUfdMEG_Uk

The download contains two SNL episodes, and the SP performances of Cherub Rock and Today are in the first one. The video chapters don't line-up properly, but the Cherub Rock segment starts at 27:34 and Today starts at 1:11:10.

The quality is how it looks in AveryLoren's screenshots. It might be the source for the YouTube video that was available before, but looking a bit better because it's the source.

I'd like to separate the Cherub Rock and Today segments from the rest of the video, without degrading the quality of those segments. I don't know how, maybe I'll look into it. But if somebody else wants to do it, would be cool.

It's no longer hosted on their site. I did find this performance which is cool:

Aaaaand it's gone.

Maybe Billy has someone scouring SP sites and pages looking for shares involving copyright violations and taking them all down. He gave an Instagram answer recently to somebody asking where some content had disappeared to, in which he stated that all actions taken regarding SP IP are intentional.

Though, that particular upload says it was removed by the uploader.

I know this isn't what anyone is looking for, but I remember this footage popping up here a while back and I thought it was kinda fun to skim through, if you haven't seen it:

Here's a lossless capture I just did. From a TV broadcast. Tape was a bit noisy but better than anything you're gonna see on youtube.

I'll leave this up for a couple days

Yup, lossless codecs like UTVideo and HuffYUV you see something like 30gigs per hour of footage. I usually keep the lossless for archive copy, and distribute x264 encodes for anything I do.

there's good mpg versions of both performances on soulseek. looks like they were taken from a comedy central rebroadcast.

That video is awesome. If only there were a better quality version available. More natural behind-the-scenes stuff like that would be cool to come across.

I got it now. Thanks, it looks great!

Here's how it compares (right) to a 66 MB video I downloaded on Soulseek (left).

Cool. If you deinterlace those screenshots they'll look better too. Not sure what you're trying to do, but FYI.
