Why ISS will not move with linear motion?

Goodmorning everyone,
I would like to understand why the movement of the ISS (or in my opinion seems) vibrating:
It seems that it moves jerkily, not a linear movement.
This can be observed both to the naked eye, using one of the many sites that transmit the USTREAM channel of the station.

Thanks a lot!

Decoding software

I couple days ago I received a signal or beacon from the ISS and assumed it was either packet or APRS but I'm leaning more towards packet. Can anyone tell me where I can find a free or trial version of packet radio software?
As far as radio's I'am pretty much set. I have the Kenwood TS-2000X and an Elk antenna on a short tower. Right now I'am only interested in receiving signals from the station.
