Import your file from scratch. Then, using the FX tab, render it, and 
see if that doesn't clean it up. Kino has one habit you have to watch. 
Say you have several clips, after editing out crap like ads. When you 
render, make sure you click on the last clip to get the end point, then 
manually enter 0 for the start point. That way you render everything 
into one blob so you can export the file to your favorite format. Sad 
that Kino seems to be getting long in the tooth. I like it. :) Ric
