Do you have movie quality set to the highest setting, or is it set lower? For example:

1280 x 720 pixels (720p)

vs.

640x480

Also, what lens are you using?

Can you upload a movie to YouTube so we can see the problem you have?

I am guessing that this is because of the low light in your house. I think if you have better lighting there will be less noise. The YouTube video looks normal to me, I don't think the problem is your camera, it is possibly the light.

Indoors will usually have worse light and image quality than outdoors. You might check to see if you have the same problem outside. Or you could try using a different lens if you have one.

Perhaps someone else can comment with suggestions for specific settings when filming movies.

In my opinion this is as good as the quality will get and your camera is functioning correctly. Maybe a dedicated movie device will do better in low light, or perhaps a better lens will help. Personally I didn't find the image quality to be bad or distracting in your video above. People are used to seeing this now that YouTube and online video has become mainstream. Higher quality in low light will probably require a higher quality video camera. I only take images so I don't think I can be of any further help. Good luck!

You need better light. At low light conditions, you will see the noise inherent from the sensor.
