I was going to post about SVP :-) I found it about two months ago. Depending on the video, the default options may cause a lot of artifacts. With some tweaking (mostly making it less aggressive in identifying motion), it works great for me!

I could be wrong, but I think whole-pixel anti-aliasing worked for these fonts back in XP, at normal sizes. If so, the question becomes whether it is possible to force whole-pixel anti-aliasing for the old fonts. If whole-pixel anti-aliasing relies on some hinting from the fonts, Microsoft might have removed them in the old fonts to make it technically impossible.

comment How to turn off ClearType and use whole-pixel anti-aliasing in Windows 7?
Thanks for the inspiration. Now I see that the problem is in the fonts, not in the ClearType configuration. For many fonts (Arial, Courier New, Georgia, Tahoma, Times New Roman, Verdana), whole-pixel anti-aliasing is disabled at normal sizes, but it kicks in at 14+pt, which is kind of lame. In my opinion, anti-aliasing is much more important at smaller sizes. In contrast, new Windows Vista/7 fonts (Calibri, Cambria, Candara, Consolas, Segoe UI) can have whole-pixel anti-aliasing at normal sizes. Perhaps Microsoft make it this way to promote their new fonts.
