Shadow of the Beast 2 longplay (Amiga).. much better quality

I recorded a longplay of SOTB2 a long time ago (actually it was my first Youtube video).
However, I had no idea how to record and encode a video properly back then so the quality was horrible.

So I decided to re-record the game as I've been playing it a lot lately anyway.

I was hoping to be able to use H264 encoding as I've done before but for some reason,
Youtube would not accept that so I was forced to use a worse codec and the quality
is not what I had hoped for.
However, it is a lot better than the one I already had up there so at least that's something

By the way, if the "commentary" annoys you, you can check out RAG later on.. I'll upload
the video there as well, without the text

Just watched the whole video.... Very well done! Personally I enjoyed the commentary.

You should point out that the FANTASTIC Game over music is real Amiga music... Some philistines may think it has been dubbed over.

I was very unsure about the commentary bit so I'm glad you enjoyed it

It's always sad to me that those two prisoners must die without chance to defence.

Do you know about the youtube uploader? It lets you upload files of up to 1gb so you can get the quailty you want even if you can use the codec. Also it seems to accept H264 videos more often i think. Not that i can see anything wrong in videos as it is anyway
