Again: Thanks a lot for testing!
If you really want to invest some effort in optimization, you should
probably check out the CVS version from sourceforge (refer to
http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=9655). The modules are "xine-lib" and
You'll find the current Debian stuff in CVS as well. Patches will be
accepted on <xine-devel@...> It's a moderated list, but you can
post immediately as soon as you're subscribed. If you don't want to
subscribe, your posts will be approved anyway, but that may take anywhere
from 5 minutes to a few hours...
Of course, you don't have to, but this project is usually great fun ;-)
