Play an interlaced video without those funny lines

Problem
I wanted to watch a DVD but it was interlaced, thus it contained lots of disturbing horizontal lines. How to get rid of those lines? Is there a way to filter them out?

Solution
Mplayer has an option for that :) Try this:

mplayer -vf pp=lb interlaced_video.iso

This procedure is called deinterlacing.

Tip from here. Image borrowed from here.

Update
VLC can do this too. Available under Video -> Deinterlace. You can also choose the deinterlacing method under Video -> Deinterlace mode.
