Menu info:
Well, this is the first menu that i have made for a dvd, so don’t be too critical. There are some errors in the menu (the select chapter page appears to pick a random chapter to select, but this doesn’t affect the playing). The menu was rendered with the trial version of dvd-lab pro.

Video info:
Yes this could have been released as just a divx (the video is kinda blocky), but i received it as a dvd, so i kept it as such. The video stream was also very tricky to work with, it was aparently damaged on the disc so i had to reencode it. The video bitrate was the same and i didn’t touch the audio at all.

Source info:
As i said, the source of this is unknown. The person i got it from wants to remain anonymous as well. From the looks of the quality, it is a high gen tape (but very watchable).

Alt Sources:
Yes i have done research and found out that there is a 2 disc version of The Psycho Tape out there. It contains no additional footage, it is just higher quality. As i doubt i will ever get that version, this one will have to do for now.

Release Info:
Well here it is, the infamous \"Psycho Tape\" in all its glory. I really hope that you guys all like it as i worked hard on getting this out (i am really sick of watching it now too… thanks!!!).
