hammer.horror,

Thanks for the fast reply.

I have quick time pro. Can you please let me know how to decompile it?
And also let me know how to find out whether it is deinterlaced.
Sorry I am novice in these things.

FYI. These MP4 clips are shot using Sanyo Xacti HD camcorder.

Thanks and Regards

well done, easy peasy

...you should really make sure that it is deinterlaced if you are tracking it.
