[mythtv-users] Internal DVD Player Problems (playing too fast?)

Well, I've been spending days, now, trying to sort out issues with getting
DVD playback to work under Linux and Myth, and I'm at a loss. The only
player I've been able to get working with some level of reliability is
mplayer (unsurprisingly). Unfortunately, mplayer's lack of menu support
makes it less than ideal for a box I was hoping would replace my external
As for Xine, it hard locks my EPIA EN12000EG after a few minutes of playback
without fail. Why this is, I have no idea, and it does so using xshm, xv,
and xvmc, so it's not display-related, AFAICT. A variety of errors pop out
in dmesg related to bad reads on the drive, but since mplayer works fine,
I'm guessing this must be a problem with Xine.
And so we come to MythDVD's internal player. Really, this would be the
ideal solution, but I'm having a weird problem: it appears the DVDs are
playing back too fast. I think. The playback is very jerky, and the audio
is definitely playing too quickly. So, has anyone else observed this
particular behaviour? I tried to Just F'ing Google It, but alas, I've come
up empty (why have you forsaken me, oh great one!)...
