How does this compare to the quality of mplayer? I experimented briefly  
with using xine as my only external player in mythtv, but I could never  
get xine anywhere near the quality of mplayer, especially on animated  
movies (as in, smaller than and upscaled to 704x576) with bright colours  
divided by sharp black lines - the lines would become jagged, like some  
nearest-neighbour upscale algorithm gone horribly wrong. MPlayer OTOH  
would present a nice smooth line with some anti-aliasing.
