I've had good results with playing the video files in VLC. A friend of
mine uses one in hardy too. Mounts the camera, copies *.mod to the
laptop, renames *.mod to *.mpg. Checks them in VLC, Puts them into
folder for sorting. And as I remember, uses Avidemux for chopping
clips and devede for making DVD's out of them. She dosnt use Avidemux
for joining the clips togeather before putting them into devede. Just
orders all clips straight into devede.

I cant complain about the results.
