I wonder if someone could tell me or point toward some info on how 
ffmpeg deinterlacing works.

that is when i do a  "  -deinterlace  "  in a cmd line --  What is 
actually happening?

Does it remove one field of a video (the odd or even lines) and then 
blend (interpolate) the remaining lines?

Does it do *adaptive deinterlacing*?

Is there more than 1 way to deinterlace via ffmpeg?  Can i use a switch 
for adaptive deinterlacing?
