Have your tried the other video output plug-ins? SyncFB is only for
Matrox cards. Xv is for cards which have Xv support. Not a very
informative statement, but "xvinfo" should tell you if you have it
(anything longer than five lines). XShm should be available on any
XFree86 4.1-based system
$ xine --help | grep video-driver -A1
-V, --video-driver <drv> Select video driver by id. Available drivers:
Xv SyncFB XShm
Then try xine -VXShm (etc.)
