that's not the only reason.

VDPAU can only decode one video at a time ; when you're in the EPG ;
the main video is still playing so you can't play another video in the

(which is also why with some themes you have so visual corruption
appearing ; in fact it's just the video underneath appearing)

How does it behave in trunk BTW? ; do you get the video showing ?

I would need to check where this error comes from ; but as you said ;
it's harmless so I'm not sure I can be bothered.

Plus I would need to know if this issue exists in trunk as well...
