This is probably one of the reasons why you are seeing poor performance and/or dropped frames. You should be using xv as a video output mechanism.

Thanks :)

Did it have any effects on your experiments?

I used to get slightly better performance from xine with my iBook G3 600MHz than with mplayer, when I tried to play DVDs with it. Now, I gave up trying to use it for this purpose.

Unfortunately, with DVDs that are interlaced (and all DVDs that I have are interlaced), deinterlacing is also needed and there goes some extra cycles, putting even more load on the CPU.

I even contributed a C version of linearblend deinterlacing to xine and tried to hack on the code of mplayer, but the code had little standards and the (lack of) indentation prevented me from doing things that I wanted to experiment with the code (it prevented a proper reading of the code).

It was a mess and the developers didn't want anybody to change the indentation.
