video playback problems during fast video sequences
I've got a very wired effect on my 1.86GHz laptop during fast video sequences. It's like if the laptop were too slow to display the images. There is a kind of horizontal "breach" in the displayed video image (as if one part of the image would display an old frame and the other part the new frame).
It doesn't matter if the video file is played from DVD or HD, the effect is the same. BTW: I have already enabled the DMA for the DVD drive.
I have also installed the ATI video driver and set the frame-buffer swap to vertical-sync in the xorg.conf.
Any ideas would could I do to have a smooth video playback? Anybody else have every had a similar problem??
