I have a Sempron 2800+ that *almost* works without XvMC.  I've tweaked
enough that about half of the HD recording play without prebuffer pauses.
However, my test case is Fifth Element and I still get a number of
pre-buffer pauses.

You indicated that you scale all of your output to 720p.  How do you do
that?  Do you transcode?  Or is the scaling done during playback?

I'm hoping that this might be the final tweak that lets me play all my HD
recording with a borderline frontend.

Thanks in advance.
