Hello, I am having issues when importing miniDV videos into Windows Movie Maker. After I import and play the AVI file, the artifacts in the attached file are appearing in the video. My camera is a Sharp VL-NZ105 miniDV recorder. I have done the following to help troubleshoot the problem:
1. Artifacts don't appear on the Sharp's LCD screen during playback
2. They don't appear on WMM preview screen while importing the video
3. They don't appear on my TV when I connect via standard audio (red & white) and video (yellow) cable
4. I replaced my Firewire cable (no improvement)
5. I have tried several of the available 1394 OHCI drivers I have available, including the legacy driver - no change
Any suggestions on what might be going on? I am stuck and trying to convert a bunch of these tapes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I watched the preview playback and those colored, block-like renderings are not present. Nor when I connect directly to the TV. There are times the file playback is not 100% perfect during preview where I might see some "shifting" around of the video, but most of the time it is excellent.
VLC can't capture video from a miniDV player, correct?
