There are horizontal scan line artefacts in fullscreen mode of xine,
though the dvd movie is watchable. If I watch the movie in window mode
(set to fill out the whole screen, but with visible window frames) there
are no artefacts. So I am asking if there is some setting I should use
to prevent scanning line artefacts. You can watch them even in the dvd
menu display or in the pause mode!
I am a happy user of xine rpmed by suse packman 0.99.2, and am using it
with Novell SuSE 9.2 on Dell Inspiron 8600 with WUGXA screen (1920 x
1200) and nvidia Go 5200 video card. I am using the nv video driver
updated by suse and not the nvidia driver supplied by nvidia web page,
because I never managed to install it on suse 9.2. I am sure this is
because it would corrupt the suspend-to-disk ability I am frequently
In Suse 9.1 I could watch dvd without artifacts but this is surely due
to the commercial driver of nvidia (e.g. version 5336).
So I am pretty sure this is only a software setting problem. The
fullsized window mode shows no artefacts but the true fullscreen mode
shows them. Interestingly I found if I watch a widescreen dvd movie in
fullscreen mode but with 4:3 aspect ratio, there are no artefacts, but
of course, the image is distorted.
I hope you can give me some spontaneous hints to look for?
Best regards to the jolly good folks of xine developers!

This is most likely a bug in the nVidia driver you are using. Although this
won't help you much, the issue is documented here:
Conclusion: You have to try finding a working version of the nVidia driver.
