xshm will use software to scale the video for the current screen size,
so it will tax your CPU a lot more. Depending on how much processing
power you have, it may stutter (or it may not, but will take up a lot
Any of the hardware-accelerated scaling methods would be better (xv,
xvmc, opengl, sdl ). If one is shaky, try another. At work, I have a
Nvidia Vanta LT that doesn't like to do Xv really well, but using
OpenGL output works just fine.
