Re: Dvd,dvd,dvd...

By the way, it seems that the reason Xine is so slow is that it uses a lot of CPU just after start (no movie playing)

876 petr 230 0 59660K 53652K RUN 0:21 136.72% 97.61% xine

Any ideas on that, Joerg?

Mine is set to 0. SO I did sysctl hw.ata.atapi_dma=1 and it says:

sysctl: oid 'hw.ata.atapi_dma' is read only

Why is that?

It is a tunable as well, so set it in /boot/loader.conf.

atacontrol has shown me that the device was in PIO4, so I set it to UDMA4 instead(which is what my drive should be using as it supports it), but then my dvds couldnt be read so I tried UDMA2 and it improved it heaps though not perfect, and it seems that mplayer seems to crash more :S.

This is strange... Well, that the drive can't handle UDMA4 is not really surprising, but you shouldn't see much issues with UDMA2.

*How* does mplayer crash?
