I'm having problems with Quicktime playback of Interlaced video.
For testing purposes, I'm playing back a PAL 20 second h.264 clip on a secondary display attached to my MacBookPro with the Apple DVI-S-Video adaptor (set to 720x576 PAL).
When I play the clip, it stutters/flickers (almost like the fields are inverted).. If I pause then play the movie repeatedly the problem seems to rectify itself for a few minutes, then it happens again, until I pause/play again.
I have tried different codecs and different players, but all with the same problem. It even happens when I "present movie" in quicktime. Has anyone experienced this problem? (and hopefully found a fix). I need to solve this ASAP since the clips need to loop for an unattended tradeshow setup.
