Thanks Dave. Also, do you have to use xine or can you use the internal
player? They seem to have patched xine on the site linked to on the
wiki. Is that because the player you're using needs to change the
refresh rate of the screen to match the fps of the video? E.g., change
to 60Hz when playing 30fps or 50Hz when playing 25fps.
