I created a new profile group for experimentation and it only has one
ruleset which has rez > 0 0. I then modify the decoder setting and the
video render setting within the offered choices. I then try out the
change to see the affect on cpu usage, etc. I haven't figured out which
specific setting(s) causes the xvmc to stop working but it is repeatable
that deleteing all the profiles clears the problem.
Given that the profile settings for video decoder and deinterlacing are
constrained by the choices of decoder and assuming that these
constraints are compatible, what possible misconfigurations would be
likely? Incompatibility with the hardware capabilities?
