working DVD player for my Linux system


xine+dvdnav

I got mplayer working first; it seemed to work well, the OSD looks very nice, but it has major licensing issues, and it's choppy when using the x11 output. Xine+dvdnav is the fastest software DVD player I've used, and that includes the version of WinDVD that came with my laptop. Even when I run with the xshm output driver (which I have to on my lappy), xine+dvdnav doesn't skip a frame, even scaling up to 1024x768. Plus, the menus are partially working!
