I got the Xv extension working. The video is as smooth as silk but unfortuately enough there is one more issue for me to iron out. found out about MPlayer being better than Xine too late and I'm not too quick to start downloading several packages again on dial-up. Telling me to get Mplayer is the same as telling urself to get xine. I'm not doing it if I can get this working.
For now, my audio lags behind the video and tweaking the gui sound settings aren't cutting it. Any ideas ?
For my sound card support I use the sb module.
I use "modprobe sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1" written into rc.M
script. Is this an issue ?
I think I'm at the home stretch with this, I am definitely pitching in for beer money if I get this wroking.
