When watching this video I noticed that low audio frequency creates a visual ripple effect. I'd like to know how this is possible. I guess this can't be due to software smoothing of whole-camera shaking, because video stabilizing algotihms produce different effects.

My guess is that the low frequency is inducing vibrations in the camera. Video stabilization software is unlikely to react fast enough to remove them. Do an experiment - put a video camera on a bass speaker and hit it with some low frequency notes eg 30-50Hz and see what happens.
