Emily Glitch Video Analysis

It looks like the video effect finds and enhances edges of objects in the video frames and distorts them, so when Emily’s head moves the distortions move.

Yeah, maybe the psilocybin is playing tricks on me…

I’m gonna get me some sleep…Good look with the investigation!


I believe the video is sped up a bit. I slowed it down to about 0.70x in VLC and she speaks more naturally.

I almost want to say she says “old ones” before the video glitches out (5 seconds in). She definitely makes an OH vowel sound there, and looks like more than one syllable. Hard to tell though because of the distortion.

At 16 seconds in, I noticed this grid effect when the “wave” effect washes upwards. Does anyone remember if the Elizabeth videos (which had a similar wave effect) had this grid? I don’t remember seeing it before.

Probably an unnecessary duplication of what @DuckDuck did above, but here are some straight-up extractions of the audio from the clip using Adobe Premiere Pro:

Plus 6db MP3 (256kbps) audio: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2TXIRnadWftUFdkNDZ3bmFjTjA


mine have ambient background sounds, so this is excellent! :clap:

Thanks for checking! I wonder if there is a pattern to this showing up. Is this the edge or barrier of a simulation? It seems more pronounced in the Emily video, but I’ll have to go back and check the Liz videos later.

Could be RTTY @sheralmyst mentioned they used the with weather balloons, the audio could be put through this maybe??

Looks like that was @sheralmyst who said that. I’ve never heard of RTTY before, but interesting:

Yeah sorry your right @solarparty it was @sheralmyst previous post edited :wink:

No I’ve never heard of it either, I don’t have a PC so can’t even try it lol

no it is not weather balloon data, it is more of a shipboard radio broadcast

It’s worth noting that Emily had posted on the ETARC news:

Can you do DSP with an Arduino? https://www.etarc.org/?s=dsp
Dan KB6NU, a prolific HAM radio blogger and technician, recently posted this article on using Arduino units to manage DSP audio playback. His article details his experiments and research into using pure Javascript to properly utilize filters for audio playback with this method, allowing the Teensy 3.6 Arduino unit to play back audio on its own without the need for another device.

Maritime Mobile Service Net Relays Distress Call; Crew and Vessel Safe
Calling out to the MMSN’s 14.300MHz frequency, the net control station controller on duty was able to be contacted, relaying their position to the US Coast Guard.

Not sure if they are useful or not, but they could be relevant?


Well, I have been thru a steep learning curve. Ran the mp3( thanks Malveka) thru a program for rtty ascii and some I don’t even recognize and came up zilch… :cry: (going to cry in the corner) It still seems like there may be something there…but it is beyond me…


I think that @sheralmyst, @FRANK_CADILLAC and @solarparty are really on to something via the Radioteletype (RTTY) idea. It just makes sense considering Emily’s background. More so, I feel like this would be a good topic for the Knowledge Center thread that she made because it feels like a lot of folks might gain some knowledge through some discussion about it. What it is, The History, How it works and How it has evolved due to Technology… stuff like that.

For now though, I found this-- http://www.sigidwiki.com/wiki/Radio_Teletype_(RTTY)
If you scroll down there are samples. I have been watching You-Tube videos through out the day and have learned that most amateur stations use the 45Bd. So, take a listen. To me it sounds just like Emily’s recent glitched video.

Edit: Also, there’s a list of decoding software on the bottom of the page. I think some are free. For example, Fldigi. I don’t have the knowledge to do this stuff. But, maybe someone on here can download something via their PC and run the clip through it.

In the meantime, I have reached out to someone that I think might be able to help with lip reading. Stay tuned.


Right away, I see a connection, she posted the Can you do DSP with an Arduino on April 7th, 2017 which matches the date of the Internal Memo from yesterday’s live drop. The document that was in the briefcase has a date on the upper right hand side and ironically Game Detectives did not include it via the typed translation.


:tada: sittin’ here cheerin’ you guys on! Go! Go! :laughing:


from looking at the sites here https://forums.etarc.org/t/emily-glitch-video-analysis/1793/46?u=duckduck i found this. its a similar pattern!
