Re: Tech experts: Do YouTube videos quality decay over time?

Maybe your perception of quality has changed? I find that some of the music files I used to listen to 10/15 years ago is unlistenable, as I have acquired better equipment and I am now able to realize how badly recorded, uploaded, or encoded it was.
