Carl Magnus Palm is responsible for writing the booklet and on his website, he has further details, including these details about the DVD:

“The Essential Collection pulls together every official ABBA promo clip as originally conceived and produced by Polar Music in the 1970s and 1980s…

The clips are newly remastered in the 16:9 format, as opposed to the normal 4:3 format. However, this does not mean that the aspect ratio of the picture has been compromised – on the contrary you get more picture for your money, since the 4:3 frame shaves off some of the original 16mm picture. On the DVD, the picture takes up more space on the screen, with “black bars” on either side of the picture.”

Very bad error on dvd. "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" has been mastered at the wrong speed and the quality of video varies from song to song.
