enable DMA?


I use Xine to play DVD's or AVI files it seems that sometimes it would play really slow... kinda feels like IM trying to play a DVD on 486 or something I don't know. BUT I have a feeling I have to enable DMA or something else to play DVD smoothly... Cause I got a 1.2 AMD Athlon 512MB on an ASUS A7V with a Geforce 2 GTI OR does anyone know any other kind of player that runs better then Xine?

as all the decent players use libdvdread as a backend to access the dvd, ther'es *very* little difference in speed. just enable DMA, you should do anyway.. as long as it desn't crash your system, like mine does!

man hdparm
