If there was a DVD of a gig, say for example the recent Assembly gig which was recorded in HD, would you buy it?

Yes! I'd love to support the band by throwing more money at them!
26 (89.7%)
No. I want it to be free and on YouTube because I'm a skinflint.
2 (6.9%)
Not only would I buy it 5 times over, but I have video editing experience and may be able to help edit it!

How can we throw money at you guys for this? Will there be a donate button along with the download? I refuse to take free things from you, it just feels wrong!

Thank you so much for your hard work!
Seconded on both points.

It'll be compressed with x264, two pass, 6.9 Mbps. Audio will be 192Kbps, 16 bit, 48Khz stereo. Resolution will be 720p25.

The 6.9 Mbps bitrate will result in a 4GB file.

Does that sound good enough? Some (but not all) source material is DVCPROHD 1080i50, so I could export 1080i50 version later if there's enough demand.

Donate button is coming up. We'll make it happen around the release of the video. Maybe we will have some more free stuff for you then. =)

192kbps audio? If you're going for 6.9mbps video, at least make the audio a decent quality - that's the best bit anyway!

(EDIT: For "decent", I would suggest minimum 320kbps MP3, lossless would result in another gigabyte maybe of size, but it would be worth it for downloading.)
(EDIT 2: 1080i would be awesome, I vote for that if anyone else wants that and you are willing to render and upload it)

The audio is AAC, not MP3, that gives better bang for the same bitrate. But I guess I could make that 256 Kbps AAC.

I know AAC gives better "bang for bitrate" (have you heard about HE-AAC, I encode all my music for my iPod at 80kbps, yes, 80, and it sounds awesome) but if you're going to make a video with almost 7mbps, why skimp on audio? The filesize is pretty massive regardless.

EDIT: If you offer up a 1080 version, could you put lossless audio in that one instead?

Nice! I can't wait, also:
997 Gigabytes? That's almost a Terabyte!

Funny enough, that's exactly as much as my friend's whole Touhou music covers collection...

OMG. A Double DVD would be awesome. ~3 hours of live music all enclosed with a beautiful cover and a CD with all the songs in one beautiful package. I can dream...
