I recompiled with march=Athlon-XP, but it still isn't fast enough to do
everything without XvMC. However XvMC is working now, but I'm running
into problems with the OSD. It's B&W which isn't a huge problem, but it
causes serious stuttering of the video and audio when it's on screen,
and every so often it will lock up the frontend. I'll get a message
stating "Waited too long for decoder to pause" Whatever that means.
I've read through some messages and the only "solution" I've seen is to
buy a faster processor and use Xv. Not much of a solution for me. I
also tried removing the fade feature of the OSD, but that didn't work.
So I'm wondering if this problem is fairly common, or is it fixed and I
haven't heard, or what?
