    From what I've seen, not really. It will blur the image to compensate for the extra size.

    Zoom and enhance!

    All you have to do is download an image enhancer that can bitmap while simultaneously reversing the encrypted pixel flow of the MD5 HASH and enlarge the C-Axis.

    No, you can't make a low quality video into an HD video. I mean, you can make it look a bit better with some editing, but you won't turn a 144p video into a 4k masterpiece.

    Haha very funny Zwielicht.

    To NikoNikic, however, no, it is impossible. Videos can only be downgraded, in a sense - if something is recorded in HD, you can watch it in 720p, 480p, etc.
    But if something is recorded in 480p, you can't watch it in 720p or HD.

    So if you want a HD video, the answer is simple - get a HD camera!

    Unfortunately, you can't increase a video's quality. It is based on the camera it was shot on. Better camera = better video. Sorry! :(

    Yeah you can scale it up to 720p and hope for the best. The program will just fill in the missing pixels with it's best guess for what color should go there.

    Or if you can, find a higher quality version somewhere.

    Simple answer is no - at the end of the day you are just scaling up the same video so quality can only decrease as you scale.

    It can be done if you have the resources to do it. The procedure is as follows:
    1. Decompile the video into the low-quality images and audio.
    2. Enhance the images onto better quality with Photoshop or anything.
    3. Recompile the video using the enhanced images.
    4. Add audio.

    Not sure if this can be done in a batch mode though, as it's a time-consuming process, to edit the images one-by-one.

    There really is no way to upscale a SD video HD. There may be some programs out there that may "help" but it will get blurry the bigger you make it.

    Hey!
    I always upload low quality videos but before I upload I convert them to 720p and YouTube shows them as HD (HD appears next to video title)
    but it does not change the quality of the video. 360p will stay 360p. But it's worth getting the HD to appear.
    And in the video there will be a 720p option.
    720p is an example you can choose any quality.
    Good Luck :)

    Yes, you can and it's not only easy to do but it's very common.

    Lookup "interpolation" there's many types of algorthyms they use to fill in the pixels. The best software I've used for video is called "instant 4k" and they have plugins for most editing software. You just click the resolution you want & it does all the work for you. It's a little expensive but if you just want it done to 1 video you can lookup "interpolation service" on Fiverr or freelance boards.

    I do not think so. From the experience I have had so far, all I know is that it is possible for you to get 360p video from 720p but the inverse is a little bit challenging. I also know that the quality of the videos start from the cameras and equipment that were used to capture it. If there is any person who have ever done this before, then please share with us what goes around.

    I've done this a lot for photo & video. I typically interpolate up to 4k video. Any interpolation software will do it. I recommend "Instant 4k" for video. I've also interpolated photos from 18MP up to 60MP for huge prints.
