    I have noticed this on some older DVDs I have watched. I think it is just normal.

    yes that happens with DVDs on occasion.

    Happens with anime DVDs, it is due to the way the DVD is made.

    Fixing, not sure, It does happen though, espechially with DVD's that are old or have a tv series, I have a DVD recorder and when I play them on a Mac they look grainy and do that wierd movement thing. Its a quality thing, not sure how to fix it at this moment :confused:. Its more of a disk quality and the pixels than the Mac itself.

    try turning on de-interlace in DVD Player (under the Video Menu) if you're playing it on a Mac

    I'm pretty sure (tho it's just by memory) that that fixed it on my simpson DVD's
