    Hey folks

    I ripped all of my DVDs to my mac with Handbrake, added em to iTunes and now I can watch them all through my Apple TV. but a lot of videos, mostly from TV shows, are interlaced and you can really see the lines blown up on a 50" plasma :(

    Anyone know of any freeware apps out there I can get that I can use to deinterlace the videos to look normal on my TV?

    I remember using Final Cut Pro for this a while back, but I don't have access to it anymore and don't want to spend $1000 to buy my own copy to do it :) Just looking for a little app I can find that will do the trick for me, and have the end result still work with iTunes and Apple TV

    MPEGStreamclip should do it. It's worked for me in the past.

    You shouldn't have any trouble playing interlaced material on your plasma.

    Regardless, as already mentioned, something like Mpegstreamclip should work.

    Handbrake has a deinterlacing filter than you can apply while encoding. So you'll need to either re-encode them or play with something can de-interlace (read: not Apple TV).
