I know this has been covered a ton before, but after searching the archive,
I still came up blank. So here goes. I built a system with the following
P-III 1.0 GHz Coppermine
256 MB PC-133 RAM
PC Chips M779MR MicroATX MoBo
Nvidia GeForce 4400
Seagate 160 GB Hard Drive
Sony DVD Rom
Everything but the Mother Board and Processor are new. After it is all
setup, When I try to play back MPEG video with Xine, it looks like crap. It
drops frames all over the place. It does not matter is it is from a disk in
the DVD drive, or if it is an ISO on the hard drive. Top tells me that Xine
is using 85-90% CPU. I have a similar system and it only uses 15-25% CPU
when decoding MPEG video. So I am looking for help or places to start
trouble shooting. This system should be more than adequate.
Here is what I have already done.
DMA for both drive is on.
Xine is launched with "xine -V xx"
using the latest Nvidia drivers
given root privileges to xine
run "xine-check" and no problems were detected.
using 80 conductor IDE cable
Any help would be appreciated. -Mat
