Now it is, in the user doc:


I added a note suggesting "vlc -p deinterlace --advanced" to get a
description of available options.

I didn't list the specific options in the doc, as they might change. In
1.2-git, they are:


Streaming deinterlace

--sout-deinterlace-phosphor-chroma {1 (Latest), 2 (AltLine), 3 (Blend),
4 (Upconvert)}                                                  
Phosphor chroma mode for 4:2:0

--sout-deinterlace-phosphor-dimmer {1 (Off), 2 (Low), 3 (Medium), 4
Phosphor old field dimmer strength


Note that the sout prefix is for historical reasons; these are intended
for controlling normal playback behaviour.

This was helpful (thanks Kaarlo for the link):
