    Youtube downloads

    Hi all

    I do a lot of music clip downloading from YouTube and as we all know the video quality might look perfect on the original source, but once the clip is burnt into DVD the playback on a stand-alone TV is disappointing as the picture ends up being pixelated.
    This may be a dumb question, but does anyone know if it is possible to ‘de-pixelate’ the video content??

    Thanks in advance for any answers or suggestions.

    You are apparently downloading the low quality versions of the files. Its not possible to add detail that isn't there. You need to download the high resolution versions of the files. Search "How to download 720p or 1080p video from YouTube" for instructions and the required software.

    Hi all

    Many thanks for your suggestions - 4 things I should have mentioned from the very start:
    1. I'm no computer geek (meaning I download at the highest possible resolution on offer)
    2. This pixilation issue only affects some downloads (as 480 is the highest resolution available to choose from), so I have my doubts whether de-pixelling is possible at all.
    3. Most downloads-when viewing the playback on TV-are absolutely perfect, meaning the TV or DVD disc aren't at fault in any way.
    4. I save everything as a MP4.

    You just answered your own question. Most Common Video Resolutions are the following ones:

    352 x 240 (240p) (SD)
    480 x 360 (360p)
    858 x 480 (480p)
    1280 x 720 (720p) (Half HD)
    1920 x 1080 (1080p) (Full HD)
    3860 x 2160 (2160p) (Ultra-HD) (4K)

    Most modern TV’s use 1080p or 4K. 720p is also called HD but is usually used for laptop screens these days. 480p and lower will not display properly on a big screen. There is no way to make 480p look good even using the best scaling algorithms.
