Question Fullscreen Movies (avi - fine, dvd - lags)


I have the newest Xine and the frontend Xineou I thinks its called. I am now watching a movie I have on CD (*.avi) which is on full screen. Its playing great. I load up any of my DVD movies and they lag when on fullscreen. I can watch them default size all day and no problems. Can someone please point me in the right direction. Thanks a million.

Well I assume the difference is DVD's have to be unencrypted to play, and it is probably that extra step (which doesn't exist with AVI's on a CD) that is causing your slow down.

I mentioned up in the first post that a DVD plays fine as long as I don't play it full screen. I can watch it normal size just fine.

SCSI emulation would slow you down even more, how fast is your processor?
