Video image stabilization after the fact.

Where can I get video Image stabilization software or site?

I have some existing footage (avi format, mostly) but it was shot with hand-held cameras and (apparently) my hands shake like a paint mixer. My camera(s) don't have IS built in. Is there a site online that will stabilize a video for me? (free is good.)

Or software to download that will do it? I use a Mac, and would prefer to run Mac software, but I have a Windows and Linux available, too.

Thanks in advance!

iMovie has a $50 plugin that does this called Slick Stabilizer (actually it does other things too.)

There are some other 'general' ones as well here

My video editor friends at a local post house use 2d3's SteavyMove After Effects plugin It appears this plugin is only available for the Windows version of After Effects.

You can see a "shaky camera" fix in action for which I believe SteadyMove was used in the "Finishing Touches" video on their homepage (top row, middle column).

I've played with the free Deshaker plugin for Virtual Dub on Windows, and it does a pretty good job.
