    Is there a way to keep VLC's de´nterlace modus to automatic?

    By default the de´nterlace modus is turned off. Evertime I start up VLC I have to put the de´nterlace modus back to automatic.

    @ Aedipuss:

    There's no 'tools' in the menu bar of my version of VLC. I have the Apple version. It looks like this:

    The only thing I've found in the preferences about de´nterlace modes is this:

    You should have told us that in your first post. VLC isn't as good under OS X as the Windows and Linux versions and may be missing options that versions for those operating systems have. We don't like cross posting so wait about a week (sorry) and if nobody here has any suggestions or says "You can't do that on the Apple version for sure" then please make a new post about this in our Mac section and maybe someone there can help you.

    I didn't expect the Mac version to be so different from the Windows and Linux versions. I'll wait for a week before posting again about the same subject in the Mac section.

  7. In the Windows version the Video tab (Show All Settigns) itself has the interlace options at the very bottom.

    There's one in the filters tab (like on the Mac) but that's not the one you want.

    Sadly the Mac version is less functional than the Windows and Linux versions. Files that will cause VLC to crash on Macs will play fine on Windows or Linux VLC. Mac VLC also typically uses an older code base too. The Mac version is really a bit of an afterthought and in my opinion the people responsible for it are not as serious about it as the Windows and Linux developers are.

    There is something else bothering me about the Mac version of VLC. I'm wondering if this is the same with the Windows and Linux versions.

    VLC stops playing before a video is completely ended. It's only the last second or half a second that's missing. But sometimes this is frustrating.

    I've never noticed anything like that with the Windows version. What type of file are you playing? What codecs?

    @ jagabo:

    The type of files I'm playing are multiplexed MPEG 1/2.
    The codecs: MPEG-2 Video, AC3

  12. I play MPEG 1/2 videos all the time and never noticed any missing video at the end of the file -- with the Windows version of VLC.

    VLC 1.1.9 on Linux cuts videos short by around 100-300ms compared to mplayer/ffplay(ffmpeg). Random files I've tried are:
    - MPEG-2/MP2 .ts
    - H.263/AAC .mp4
    - H.264/MP3 .mp4

  14. Most of my videos fade to black at the end. But I found a few MPG samples that just cut off. MPCHC played about 1 second more than VLC did -- under Windows.

    Glad to hear it's not a Mac-related issue, VLC cutting of or fading black at the end.
