I'd be more curious why the people walking past when the object moves up the tree and then drops from it, don't react at all. They just keep walking as if nothing's happened.
I'm also curious where the child goes.
I do agree though, you see something like that and don't keep filming? I'd have the camera on that spot right up until I got there. For some reason, people capture these 'amazing' bits of footage and stop filming.
Well, there could be an illusion of depth perception here. We see these people as being very close (on the z-axis) to the event, when in fact that could be more distant. If I tried to follow every running child in a cemetery I'd have whiplash! Oh... wait...
You never see the child after it goes behind the tombstone. Curious, I suppose. Although, if you hold your thumb at the appropriate distance from your face you can obscure entire galactic super-clusters from vision. Hiding a child behind a tombstone seems trivial (intentionally or unintentionally) in comparison.
It's possible that it's commentary on the type of person that finds these event to be significant. That is to say, only people who video tape ghosts seem to have the desire to stop filming said ghost. In actuality, it's possible to imagine the rationale behind it if you assume the videographer is a believer: "oh, it's another one of those stupid ghosts... better stop filming to save tape for something more important."
I'd like to address an additional claim made in the video. Someone comments on "civil war attire." Has anyone been able to spot this in the video? It seems like it was a detail added independent of video evidence for the purpose of increasing the veracity of the claim. A civil war child sprinted to a tree to jump into it, only to fall down right after? I just don't know; it's really a nonsensical series of events.
I take issue with the idea that Civil War-era ghost children are somehow predisposed to sudden fits of tree climbing.
Well I suppose there was little else to do back then. Why break the habit of a lifetime?
There is man dressed all in black behind the child. Something appears to go up and to the right toward the tree, a piece of cloth is thrown and the man bends forward to pick it up. Just focus on that tree. Nothing ghostly.Woah! Crazy find! This should help!
Watch closely for the "jump out of the tree." Two figures walk towards the tree. One pushing a stroller (we will call her "mom") and short hooded one (we will call her "Britney Spears").
Immediately after the blob leaves the tree, don't look at the stroller or mom. Look at the tree between mom and Britney. There is a third person there wearing a black sweatshirt who stops dead, turns his face directly towards the stroller, and leans forward.
I cannot find this person in any other part of the video.
(EDIT: Timestamp is between 1:32 and 1:34. This website lists remaining time, so it reads about -2:06 to -2:04 on the right hand side (total video time of 3:38).)
(DOUBLE EDIT: It's easier to see if you don't expand the screen size. The limited resolution creates artifacts when stretched.)

It would be useful for those of us trying to debunk this for you, for you to give us a quick description of why this video is so compelling to you personally. When you only post a URL it is difficult to guess why you find this particular video special.
I can't make recommendations as to how you post, but it would be helpful to me personally if you could include a description of the video with quick notes as to why it is important.
EDIT: In other words, it's tough to help you debunk something if you "let the video speak for itself" since many people would not view that video as anything special.
Dammit, we got to get youtube to cease unauthorized uploads of our ghost tape!'"
