Audio quality of the movie is terrible.

The audio for the Riff is just fine, But for the movie itself, I literally can't tell what they're saying half the time. Don't recall that being the case with the MST3K version.

I'll look into it.

Was anything updated,Thrashalla? Is there a new file available?

I checked the master of the riff, the source itself, and tested on headphones and speakers - the audio on the print/source that we got is pretty bad, less noise than the MST but the dialog is more muddy, but I'm not having trouble understanding them. What you hear with the riff is actually after some restoration. I doubt that I'll get any more out of the source that we have but I can play around with things - in the meantime you might check out the audio on the ISO, since that gets encoded differently than the regular VOD files.

You're right, the ISO is easier to understand. Thanks again.

I used the ISO and it was pretty bad.  I can't imagine what the MP4 could have been like.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.
