According to information that is encoded inside the BirthOfNation.mkv file, the total file size should be 9.8 GB. This suggests that the file has been truncated at 2.4 GB (some 25% through) and the rest of the movie just isn't there.
This mkv file won't play, it quits at about 45 minutes. I've tried converting it and it still won't work, obviously a bad file. It should be pulled down until the file is fixed, or a good one uploaded. If you really want to see this movie in hd just buy the dvd, it is worth it, amazingly clear.

Where is the rest?
Great quality for the first third of the film, but where is the rest?

File Flaw?? How to fix?
Super playback until 44:30 when it freezes/crashes. I used VLC 2012 and a couple of other players, but no luck ingetting past that time, so I think that the problem is with the actual recording. Any ideas abou how to get this to play all the way through?
Otherwise, I have never seen such great quality for such an old film.

Excellent restoration/cleanup of the version that is already here. For those of you that are not a racist like myself, don't bother, as you will never survive 3 minutes, let alone 3 hours.
