    I have a video which I imported from a VHS using my eyetv, and overall, it's not too bad. The only problem is that the video as that telltale VHS wobble on it, which comes from a crappy video cassette.

    I want to put this on DVD, but I find the wobbling very distracting. Is there anything I can do in iMovie, using a plugin or its standard features to fix this?

    Thanks :)

    If by wobble you mean that the video is shaky then iMovie 09 has a stabilization feature. Take a look here:

    To fix that problem you'll need some kind of a time base corrector. Those units are usually quite expensive.
