Your video is better than his blurry TV show.

Your tv provider must be down cycling your video quality. I watch his show thru Finewoodworking.com (i’m a magazine and online subscriber- highly recommend both!) and with membership, you get access to all kinds of videos and content including Rough Cut since Fine Woodworking is a sponsor. They use “Brightcove” as their video player and it broadcasts in HD resolution 1920×1080. As for the resolutions its filmed in, its very good quality and id judge it to be at least 1080 resolution.

The three free episodes online are blurry/fuzzy, and it’s blurry/fuzzy on television. Also some of Fine Woodworking’s youtube clips are fuzzy. I don’t have a subscription but your screenshot looks fuzzy, but that could be from LJ downsampling the screenshot. I posted about it on youtube and Ben Strano, FW web producer, said he was working with a new camera. I’m not sure if the camera was out of focus or if it was downsampled/compressed too much in processing, probably the latter although it does actually look blurry, not just low resolution. Also, video can be 1080 and look bad.

if you don’t care to believe me then that’s your prerogative. Like I said, Finewoodworking.com uses brightcove as their in-house video player and all the content that I have watched thru it is crystal clear including rough cut.. the screenshot is a picture of a picture that finewoodworking had on their member’s site advertising the show so im sure the fuzzies have set in. I didn’t want to get into copyright infringement issues by taking a screenshot of the actual video.

You didn’t take my word about the TV show or free episodes (which anyone can see and judge for themselves), and I didn’t dispute your word about the paid subscription videos, so let’s not turn this into something personal.

lol. nothing personal at all. but I can’t let an injustice to the rough cut show be done here when it clearly is not the shows fault. The video quality I watch it in is excellent. Blame your medium but don’t blame the show. I don’t know what else to tell ya, man. It’s looks crystal clear to me.

Its poor quality, get over it. You can argue about it at the link if you have something to add and we’ll leave Ed alone.

You linked to another site with pictures of a road trip and give it 5 stars. You mentioned the TV show so I thought it was on topic. I will post no more about it.
