Strange xine error

Hi there!
I use slacke 10.0, kde 3.3.0 and xine 0.99.1

I have a ll needed codecs... I know it, because most of the time everythings works...

Now, from time to time I come across a file (mpg or wmv) that xine will not play. It loads and shows a black or a green but big pixeled screen and dies with this error:

"Your system seems too slow. the amount of dropped frames is too high"

I have an AMD 3000+ with 512MB and everything else works fine too....

Anyone has a clue what this is all about?

Greetings, Sascha

It could be that you are not using the proper drivers for your graphics card, but this is nothing but a wild guess. Alternatively, you could try to tweak a bit the graphic settings in Xine's menu and/or try a different player for testing purposes, as mplayer. I prefer mplayer over xine, by the way.

Also, try running "top" to see if a program/service is devouring your RAM. There're memory leaks sometimes...

Good luck!
