Yesterday, I got a report from a friend of mine that xine "crashes the
machine" when started. He was using Xv on a Savage chipset.
The strange thing is that he is able to play videos using Xv with mplayer.
First, I didn't believe it, but he gets less CPU usage and he can see the
blue overlay when moving the video window.
So it seems that this crash can be worked around.
Is there anybody with a bit of Xv knowlege who could have a look at xine's
(and maybe mplayer's) Xv plugin?
Thanks in advance,
