Fantastic! I'll make sure I download them while I can. I'll probably stitch together the two halves of The Protracted Man and fix the aspect ratio.

Bob's last two posts had me going down the rabbit hole of reading about this series. It seems very interesting, I may have to check it out at some point.
Mega Man is best game.

Glad I downloaded them. They're gone from YouTube now.

Well, I downloaded the .mp4 files from YouTube, but they're all kinds of messed up. Parts 1 and 2 of "The Protracted Man" don't split between scenes, but right in the middle of a line of dialogue, and it looks like a couple of frames got dropped between the end of Part 1 and the start of Part 2. Additionally, aspect ratio of both parts is not correct. They appear to have been filmed at 16:9, but both videos have been rendered at low quality 854x480 resolution, with the actual video content condensed to a 640x480 area in the middle and black bars on either side. This isn't too big of a deal, because I can crop and zoom in Vegas (changing the 854 width to 640, marking Maintain Aspect Ratio as "No", and marking Stretch to Fill the Frame as "Yes"). Then I just need to set the frame size of the output to 640x480 with a pixel aspect ratio of 1.33, which should give me just the 640x480 section of the original video I want, but displaying it at the correct 16:9 ratio. Unfortunately, this means that the final image quality is even worse than what I'm starting with. But the REALLY BIG problem is that Vegas says Part 1 has a frame rate of 29.00 fps and Part 2 has a frame rate of 29.970. I think it probably should have all been at 29.97, but I'm not sure what I can do to fix the frame rate in the first part so that it doesn't come out jittery or slowed down by 3%.
