I have installed smplayer, and configured it to use the
xv (ATI TexturedVideo)
video output. This gives me accelerated video, with compositing, that doesn’t turn into a blue window when I move it around.
The “xv” and “xv ATI Overlay” outputs give me accelerated video but a blue square when moving the window
Kaffeine (and dolphin’s video preview) seem to use phonon’s xine backend, and I can’t find out what video output it uses. I’m guessing its plain old xv as it seems accelerated but turnes into a blue square when I move the window.
How do I tell the xine backend to use the same vo as smplayer?
OS 11.2 64 bit, KDE 4.4.4 (Factory)
(ps: I have a ‘legacy’ ATI graphics chip, xpress 200M working with the opensource radeon driver, which is brilliant btw).
