I see artifacts as well, they look kind of like waves of dust and they
go diagonal as you say at about the same frequency. BTW, for anyone out
there trying to re-encode a movie under Linux to play on their recorder:

transcode -i original.avi -z -Z 112x64 --export_asr 0.8 -o rock.avi
avi2yuv rock.avi rock.yuv
halftone rock.yuv

Great work, BTW.
