I have set up MPlayer and got it to play DVDs using sdl:dga amount other
video modes and the best I can get is for it to drop ~12.5% of frames which
isn't as good a preformance as I would have expected on my system (AMD
1400 with DDR). CPU usage isn't high with MPlayer showing up on gtop at
~14% while playing in X11 mode or:
Broken pipe 364.3 A-V: -0.036 ct: -0.071 9101/9101 15% 4% 35.5% 1225 0
This leads me to supect my ATI xpert 2000 can't be set up properly or is
in framebuffer mode or something... Surly that isn't the case?
Any other suggestions?
