video problems nvidia driver?

Slackware 10.1 - 2.4.29
nvidia driver 66.29

When I play video in xine or any other app and try to skip ahead it locks up xine.
It will play fine, if I dont skip around.

Maybe a driver issue...?

I dont know how to go about this...

Maybe a codec issue, did you try with other movies differently encoded ?
Did you try mplayer ? (often when I have problem with xine, I use mplayer
and it works fine and vice versa)

Have a look in

These codecs work for mplayer, but also for xine. Download either the "essential" or "all" package (I recommend all, 12.3M) and put the codecs where xine can find them (/usr/lib/win32).
