Love the red color in that video.. so vintage, but tell me this:

 

How is it that a commercial from 1973 has such good quality on YouTube and some music videos I see from the 80's on YouTube are so pixelated and blocky?

1. Source material

Something which was recorded from broadcast on VHS-LP (and probably digitized via the composite output) is going to look a lot worse than something pulled from the original half inch tapes (via S-Video).

 

2. Compression / Recompression / bitrate / resolution

Who did the compression and what compressor & options did they use? Did YouTube recompress it (both after upload and since it was first uploaded)?
