I record a PAL VHS with Hauppauge WinTV USB-Live2 and amarectv using HuffYUV as codec. The result is a .avi that preferably must be converted to a mpeg4 or .ts for easy viewing. The motion is very important in these videos. But the problem is that the file looks like it needs some deinterlacing before it will look good. How to do that?

The video is interlaced (check that with mediainfo). But there is more.
A true Amarectv PAL capture would give you 720*576. You have a video of 720*568. What and how did you achieve that ?
There exists many ways to deinterlace. Avisynth would give you the best results. Many topics on here so do a little research.
I may be mistaken but I still see combing in that conversion.
But the problem could have been the initial 'crop'.
And to the OP. There is no need to use external sites for samples of under 500 mb. A simple attachment is all that is required.
Avisynth how, is there a beginners guide or even a complete step by step?
I will leave it to the experts to guide you but as I said there are many posts on here about it.
It is possible that your original tape had other issues. Quite likely a NTSC original so the PAL transfer suffers from field-blending etc. Even an 'oven-ready' standards conversion. But there are experts here that spot this a mile off.
Well 576 - 568 = 8 when I went to school
But if you did crop by an odd number you have altered the interlacing hence the combing. Cropping should be done (to be safe) after the deinterlace. You would also need to resize the video since huffyuv is 5:4 and you want 4:3
https://www.dropbox.com/s/59ylo17ercrqkpe/amarec%2820211026-1406%29.avi?dl=0 . This VHS is ok, but lots of the other VHS have noise. I am curious to see if clever ffmpeg can do just as a good work of making the mpeg4 after the recording is cleaned with neat video..
