YouTube 720p without 192 kbps

Post by HKO2006 » October 1st, 2016, 3:49 pm

Breaking news (for me), for some reasons I can no longer download 720p with 192 kbps audio.

The first four images are from Forever and Sending SOS. The last two are from my last two uploads, somehow one is fine while the other one got compressed a lot. The old Forever and Sending SOS m4a were downloaded in 7/2014, downloaded 720p mp4 (with youtube-dl) then extracted losslessly (with Maruki Toolbox). I even tried --all-formats in youtube-dl to download a better version of the 'new' audio, yet the best is only 126 kbps from 720p or webm, both worse than the old m4a from old 720p.

OR it's just I (keepvid.com and youtube-dl) can't access to the 192 kbps audio for me to download while a normal user can access to it in a browser.

It was removed like a year ago when they switched to the Opus (webm) format. The max bitrate is now 160, but with slightly better compression. Not a big fan of the change, I can really notice the difference from the original file.

Yet, for some reasons my last video (the one on top) is fine, I notice it also has fewer formats shown in keepvid. Maybe it's related, like making it harder to decoed/encode the video then YouTube would 'Screw it! I will leave you alone!' The video was ~10 MB before uploading, it became 36.4 MB after YouTube. The audio is encoded with qaac 2.60, compressed to 192 kbps before uploading.

Process of making it
Audio, iTunes->audiocity set rate->flac->qaac 2.60 192 kbps in Maruko Toolbox
Video, took a screenshot in MisakuAideke's video->made a single picture video (30 fps) in Maruko Toolbox (copy audio), add the subtitles to the single picture video in Maruko Toolbox (copy audio)->used MP4 FastStart->upload
Became 29.874 fps, 36.4 MB

PS T_T, should have downloaded all old videos AHHHHH... sigh, hopefully, I have downloaded some, full list http://tieba.baidu.com/p/3160685526 (Chinese)

Don't think keepvid is displaying all formats. The audio only Opus stream (webm format) is not even in the list. Try youtube-dl with the command '-F' to see a more accurate list. I know I checked a video that is like 5 days old and it had the full audio spectrum.

Also the top video don't seem entirely processed yet.
