    Hello everyone
    I've seen lots of TV sets lately that take a video signal and create intermediate frames giving a super smooth playback. My TV (connected to my Macbook for watching films) doesn't do this, and I was wondering if there's any software etc that can emulate this effect. I'm mostly playing back HD content in .mkv files using VLC. I have the Macbook connected to the HDTV via HDMI cable, running at 1920x1080 @ 24hz.
    Any ideas?

    The supersmooth playback thing alters how the movie is supposed to look, it kinda makes it seem more like a TV news report or something shot at 30 fps. IMO this detracts from the feel of the movie. For Windows there are post processing filters like ffdshow that can do this but I haven't seen anything like that for OSX.

    I'm aware of the effect it has, and I like it, hence the post. I was also aware of ffdshow and if someone knows of a Mac equivalent that'd be great.
