@Quackor

You're actually seeing 25 different drops [or segments of the stream] every second... the waveform being played through the speaker is vibrating the pipe in a uniform way, so the drops exit the pipe uniformly, the frame rate of the camera is synced with the speaker so the drops appear static, [and] the short shutter speed means the drops appear sharp and frozen in mid air [a longer shutter speed, in contrast, would capture more of each droplet's movement, causing it to appear blurry].

So it does have something to do with that stereo.

Syncing up the speak frequency with the frame rate of the camera.

Watching was amazing. But listening made me want to pee.
