During the CRS-3 mission the 1st stage did a soft retro landing above the water . The stage landing gear was released and the retro fire took place. When SpaceX retrieved the 21 second onboard video the quality was horrible. There were quite a few dropped frames and corruption. You can see the original raw video here just to see how bad it is.

SpaceX asked the community for help. And the community responded. Linked below is the community YouTube site which is updated regularly of the latest in the restoration videos.
