I have this old exercise DVD, and a couple of months ago I got VLC to play it after some fiddling. That time I was able to set it so there weren't the awful distortions it once again has, and I can't remember how I did that.
Its encoding is mpgv, with a resolution of 720x480. Not only do those awful bars cut across the screen, but there are all sorts of trails in the image and the video jumps all the time. How can I fix these problems?
