So anyway, why is MPlayer that much better? Just curious really, I like them both, although I use Xine because I always have.
I know you were posting to Acid, but I wanted to throw in my 2 cents..
from my personal experiences, on my lower-end system (A pII-333 with 192 Megs of ram) Mplayer is so far the ONLY app that allows me to watch DVDs like I used to with PowerDVD back in my old Win98 days...watching DVDs on my laptop when I travel was important to me and a roadblock to going linux only on my laptop.
I will agree tho that Xine on my Athlon works just fine...but that's a higher end system....
