has anyone got xine to play DVDs on freebsd? videolan can play DVDs on
freebsd.. but the playback sucks even on a 500 mhz machine.
by now, xine runs pretty nicely on freebsd. however, unfortunately not
quite as well as on linux
i am currently trying to find reasons for this lack of performance on
freebsd compared to linux and am mostly stuck with the theory that agp
support is not really the same as on linux. maybe someone who knows more
about xfree, agp and freebsd will eventually comment on this or propose a
solution. any input on this would be welcome...
even when using XvShm to display the video data xfree86 uses significantly
more cpu power on freebsd than on linux (~15% on freebsd compared to ~1-3%
on linux) which further indicates there's something wrong here.
Comments, hints, ideas very welcome,
time is a funny concept
