Thought I'd try mplayer for playing DVD's last night. It mainly works great
with OSS and SDL sound drivers, but with ALSA sounds runs veeeery slow.
(ALSA runs ok with VLC and normal use).
I cannot see any settings for ALSA within mplayer that could affect this,
and idea's anyone?
Also, I notice that when mplayer is running with ALSA, mplayer is only using
30% CPU, if it uses
another sound driver it is up at 80%, just like all my other DVD players.
This would imply that if I can get ALSA working with mplayer ok, and CPU
usage stays at 30%, then my video frame-rate could be faster.
