I will try to test tonight and get you all the info, different setting
etc.  I did notice that it wasn't a cpu limitation, usage was around
40% so I'm thinking it is gpu limited, only running a 6600GT

ok, so I'm guessing 60Hz isn't high enough?  Unfortunately that is all
my display will do.  I think I tried linearblend and kernel deint and
was getting the same message but once again I will test later and get
logs, do you want them with -v playback?
