    Hi Hot-Text,

    Thankyou very much for your help as it indeed helped me to refine the video quality much more. I first figured out that i had to install the software that i got with the camera and then adjust some of those properties you suggested and it worked. Im getting normal clear video's now...
    Thanks again for your help
