What player are you using, might be worth trying some kind of deintelacing. In Xine, its somewhere in the options, have to set it to expert mode to see the option, then in the video tab I think, theres a few options there to play with. I believe VLC and Mplayer have it built in too. Might clean it up, just a guess from me though.
I then wanted to make a screenshot to show here what the problem really is, ans I was shocked, because when I took the snapshot, the picture was perfect, I mean the png file showed exactly what should have been on screen ...
Hmm, this does sound pretty weird. It does sound like something with the decoder, its not quite outputting right. I got that sometimes, taking a screen would always give me a blank screen of video feed because my card couldn't break the stream up into 2 things. What card do you have? Sounds like the hardware mixer is part of it, but I'm not really sure
