Fast Forwarding improves video quality!


#1

Hi there! I’ve come across an issue that is pretty obvious during fast forwarding a HD file (mkv) with WD TV Live. The resolution and the sense of depth of the video quality increases substantially. It’s like seeing a HD movie in a plasma screen.

Is this possible due to an optic illusion of our eyes because the compression is not perceived at high speeds?

I’ve yet to understand this but I wanted to share my result with you and await you oppinions.

Thanks in advance.

Never noticed that myself (probably because I watch ON plasma) but since the Fast Forward is just sampling individual frames from the stream in non-consecutive order, what you’re describing is probably illusion…
