    Re: wich or that?

    Which.

    Now - why?!

    Also, check the meaning of "perceivable".

    Re: wich or that?

    why what? why is it inspiring?

    isn't unperceivable something that is hard to perceive?

    would it be better if I changed it to "incredible"?

    You could use incredible or unimaginable.

    Re: wich or that?

    Your question was: wich or that?

    I gave you the answer. But why is 'which' correct and not 'that'?

    because it introduces nonessential clause?

    Re: wich or that?

    Yes. It just adds further information about the video.
    As opposed to:
    "I found the video that you want." Here, the clause 'that you want' tells me more specifically that of all the videos he has, he has found the particular one that I want.
