the Music and Videos from the PC versions are mostly in lower quality than the console versions.
I have made some mods for the games.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
Music files ripped from Dreamcast release. (Using Audacity)
The videos from PC version has only 15fps and the Xbox and Dreamcast versions has 30fps.
Videos are ripped mainly from the XBox, because they are less blocky than these from the Dreamcast and have a higher resolution (640x480).
Only the bails video is ripped from the Dreamcast, because the Xbox version is different. (Using FFMPEG)
And for the Intro i used the XBox version, i have replaced the THPS2X Logo with the THPS2 Logo from the Dreamcast version. (Using Avidemux)
The Music in the intro is from the Dreamcast HQ musictrack. (Editied with Audacity)
The PC version is limited to display the videos only in 320x240. (Re-encoded with RAD Game Tools 1.2i)
So, the HQ videos only benefit from the higher framerate (30fps) and the higher bitrate.

The videos from PC are heavy blocky, because it uses MPEG1 and not Bink. (Printed wrongly on the cover)
