I personally had some "funky" results, the last time, I tried using
avisynth (which is used in the 2003 test, I believe). Maybe the
decoding or some processing done by avisynth is producing this
And he use Media-Player-Classic (a DirectShow player) for taking the
shots. This means, there might be some post-processing involved, that
also tweaks brightness.
But I might also be completely wrong...

Simply give them the best you can! :)

best wishes,
