I'm confused by the statement that slim is the same as 0.20. 0.20
didn't even offer ffmpeg as a decoder did it? In any case, it would
depend on what the users previous settings were.
I'm still on 0.20.2. I'm using bob and libmpeg2. As I understand it,
in order to get those exact settings in 0.21, I'd need to create a new
profile group with only one profile for all resolutions that used
xv-blit (I believe), libmpeg2 as a decoder, and bob as a deinterlacer.
