[mythtv-users] Internal DVD player problem with XvMC

My internal DVD player has played the menu OK but has hung with repeated
'loading codec' messages when a title was selected. There didn't seem
to be many people reporting this.
It appears that it was caused by my attempt to use XvMC - may be a
problem with nVidia support of 'old' video cards, may be more general.
Now with /etc/X11/XvMCConfig removed and Frontend setup -> TV settings
-> Playback -> Decoder Settings -> Preferred MPEG2 decoder set to
'Standard' or 'libmpeg2' the playback of DVDs or iso images works properly.
I've posted more details on atrpms-users.
Just one query: the sound comes through on the alternative channel. I
haven't seen a way to switch the default. Anyone?
TIA, John P
