kaffeine player disc operation and deinterlace

Hi.ı have 2 questions about kaffeine player 0.8.1

1)Sometimes When I open a music file,a video file or play a dvd kaffeine start the operation which is hdd getting noise and taking from about 30 seconds up to 3 minutes even after close kaffeine.Like a big file compile or disc defragmentation. In addition when i change the settings of kaffeine like deinterlace quality and press aply than kaffeine start again same operation.There is no any error message and everything play smooth and properly but i dont know what is this.

2)Which deinterlace option that should be use for a dvd for best picture quality.Very very high cpu usage option is the best for dvd play ?

Thanks a lot for now.

1]When you play a DVD for the first time kaffeine has to decrypt it with libdvdcss. This sometimes takes a few minutes. Kaffeine / libdvdcss generally "remembers" the encryption, so next time you play the DVD, it'll start faster.

2]When watching video with kaffeine, you can turn deinterlacing on and off by pressing the "I" key on your keyboard. Choose whichever setting looks best for you.
Deinterlacing options are a trade-off. If you have a fast CPU, you can select "Very very high CPU usage" and you will get a good picture. If your CPU is too slow, you may find that this option means that kaffeine will drop frames as it cannot de-interlace in real time. This will give you jerky playback.

So, there's no "correct answer" - try the different options and find which works best for you, your display, your video, and your CPU.
