I found out what the problem was. My memory was playing a trick on me,
remembered that I had to turn off OpenGL when I did the DVB rescan since I
connected via VNC. But when I turned OpenGL back on it just worked ~5
seconds. Tried some playback options and found that the "Sync to video
(experimental)" (not sure if it's called that, am using Swedish) did this.
So it could be that changing to QT painter and then change back to OpenGL
trigged this.
I now have the Sync to video-option turned of and everything is working fine!
