Progressive means that every horizontal line is shown on the tv screen at all times, while interlaced (normal) means that only every other line is shown at a time, but it alters the lines way wya way faster than the human eye can detect.

Since progressive always shows all lines, it will be more crisp/colors more vibrant.

thanks bro because like i said i really couldnt tell the difference

It depends on your connection and TV. If you're using a non-HDTV that supports Progressive, you likely won't see anything. Also, if you're using anything worse than Component, it probably won't make a huge difference either.

Youtube video is pointless. Comparing composite and component, completely unfair. One is a nice rgb signal, and the other is a crap composite signal. Of course the rgb one will be much better, regardless of it being interlaced or progressive. Test should have been RGB progressive vs RGB interlaced.

How is that pointless or unfair?

Progressive mode means you tend to hold more liberal viewpoints on social issues while normal mode means that you hold views based on conservative values and tradition.

We are talking about the Everybody Votes channel, right?

Two different signal types. You can't say here is the difference between interlaced and progressive and then go ahead and use component video which is a nice rgb signal and the best you can get for analogue video and then for the interlaced side use composite which is awful and is pretty much the one of the worst analogue video signals and suffers from issues like colour bleed and dot crawl.

So one video signal is a nice clear picture due it it being component and the other is a crap composite signal and has all the video issues that go along with it and somehow that is a fair comparison of progressive vs interlaced.

The video is a comparison of component cables (using 480p) vs composite cables (using 480i). It is a perfectly fair comparison.

As a video for comparing component vs composite, fine, no issue with it, it's fair enough. Video was linked to in response to this topic though, which is progressive vs interlaced, not component vs composite. Using component vs composite video to demonstrate progressive vs interlaced is not fair and it should be the same signal for both sides, not one side being a significantly worse one.

Oh, I assumed he was talking about upgrading from composite cables to component cables.
