    Can comb artifacts result during playback, or are they always a part of the video file? I see them even on professionally made DVDs played with VLC. Not so much with my DVD player, but I wonder if that has its own (anti)comb-filter like CRT televisions had back in ancient history....

    I'm not worried about viewing enjoyment, I just don't know whether I am applying unneeded filters when I encode.

    They can result from improper playback/display of an interlaced signal. I would venture to say that that is usually the source of the problem and not that there is a flaw w/the video itself.
