    Following on from my previous thread...

    I can make H.264 and Theora files in VLC by exporting the MovieMaker
    file to a WMV file and then using this as the source for VLC (but
    obviously this isn't an optimal process, hence my previous post), but
    on these files, the start of the video emerges from a grey mist rather
    than as a 'proper' starting point.

    This grey mist effect can be seen in this video:

    (This video is not my own, but the first few seconds display the error
    I am getting. The linked video is SFW - it's just some guys performing
    a synth & ukulele version of "Are Friends Electric?"!)

    If anyone can help me in suggesting ways to get rid of this error, I'd
    be grateful!
