This is not a streaming problem or site video player problem. It's also not a brand new problem as such, GB has always had some issues with video compression. But the brand new Bayonetta 2 trailer really just looks like absolute shit in so many spots that I couldn't ignore it anymore.
Just look at all those beautiful blocks.
I downloaded tr_bayonetta2_021314_4000 and a random 720p Youtube video of the same trailer. Guys, your compression is worse the Youtube compression. I mean you can see compression in the Tube video as well, but yours is just a complete mess. What's funnier is that your video is about 20 megs larger and has higher bitrate but still looks like absolute butt.
I don't know enough about video compression to suggest how to fix it though, someone else will have to figure that out. Here's what MediaInfo says the commanline is, in case some video wizard from the community knows more.
Encoding settings : cabac=1 / ref=5 / deblock=1:0:0 / analyse=0x1:0x131 / me=dia / subme=6 / psy=1 / psy_rd=1.00:0.00 / mixed_ref=0 / me_range=16 / chroma_me=1 / trellis=1 / 8x8dct=0 / cqm=0 / deadzone=21,11 / fast_pskip=1 / chroma_qp_offset=-2 / threads=24 / lookahead_threads=4 / sliced_threads=0 / nr=0 / decimate=1 / interlaced=0 / bluray_compat=0 / constrained_intra=0 / bframes=0 / weightp=0 / keyint=60 / keyint_min=25 / scenecut=0 / intra_refresh=0 / rc_lookahead=40 / rc=abr / mbtree=1 / bitrate=4000 / ratetol=1.0 / qcomp=0.60 / qpmin=10 / qpmax=51 / qpstep=4 / ip_ratio=1.41 / aq=1:1.00
It seems like it's missing some news and trailer items, and only shows 4 entries at the moment.
Probably. I just don't think they can ignore that install base.
I wouldn't be surprised if P-team did the PS3 game and Sega would outsource the port(s, PC version plz :p ). Sega is kind of a wildcard in more ways than one.
