Is it a hard drive camera or does it have a disc? I'm not familiar with this camera so excuse me for asking, but with my camera you have to convert the video with the camera before you can play or transfer it to the computer. Just a thought good luck hope that you figure it out.

Did you try changing the extension from .TPD to something that Windows understands like mpeg or AVI. I do this with my Canon.

I have the same problem with my 2GHz P4 desktop. I believe that it may be that the computer is not up to the challenge. As a test I tried it on my work laptop which is a 2GHz Core2 Duo and it was much better. I read that you should use a Core2 Quad or better for video editing. Uuggg! more money.

Install the software that came with your camera. My JVC camera stores them as a .mod file (is smoe kind of mpeg, with some other encoding thrown in. If I just change the extetion to an mpg it will play, but a scene changes, and high speed it will show the lines you talk of, but if I use the software it came with it is just fine. Also remember that most people don't run there computers at HD resolutions, so you ill get some line doubling at higher video resolution.
