What the police gave the media is exactly what they took from the Cecil video files. Also, the police say they didn't speed up the film, the Cecil didn't even examine the video before the police, so the "slowing" was the editing of the video. You find that in the lawsuit, pages 16 thru 18. It was originally the video shown by the media. That is the unedited video. Here is an answer to why video goes pixilated. Pixelation usually happens when you compress the data in video files to make the video files smaller and reduce memory usage. This excessive compression, however, could negatively affect video quality. Some of the data encoded in the video are permanently erased, thereby creating the "pixelation" effect on the video.
