Kino can't do format importing? Most other tools I've worked with  
can. You should check it out, it could save you a lot of time,  
effort, and disk space.

Yeah, we got that it was DV. All DV files are the same, where the  
only differences exist between PAL and NTSC.

You'll need LibDV installed, and then you'll have to recompile  
MPlayer to use it. Just use mencoder and output to livdv, but make  
sure you scale up to 740x480 and have the framerate set properly.

I've had problems with libdv before, however, and it's far from  
perfect. YMMV. Good luck.
