VLC's sharpen video effects
I've mentioned this before but bumping it here because it is just too good to be ignored. If you watch a lot of lower resolution videos (lower than x720 HD) you must try VLC with its sharpen video effects. I have a lot of SD videos (x480) and watching that in fullscreen mode with VLC and sharpen factor of 0.16 (which seems to be the optimum factor) is just incredible, it looks like a x720 HD video on any other player. This is especially true if the original video was uploaded in high quality (eg. on youtube in HD and re-encoded to lower resolution). Even x360 videos can be jazzed up like this. In the latter case I normally zoom the video by 50% and then apply the sharpen effect. Attached is a script I made to zoom in different sizes, sharpen videos, etc. I have it in my "open with" menu (right-click video file, open with the script and choose).
