REAL RESULTS are independed from this stuff.
They are real things which were computed by mplayer's core (old and new)
during movie playback.

There is published fourcc, WxH, bitrate and all other info!
Anyone can reproduce benchmarks with any other file which he like.
(except using of excplictly bad formats like: ASF, MOV_QT, FILM, VIVO)
It doesn't matter which file is used - just relative comparision of working
of two cores.

Who writes new drivers for vidix? nvidia users? you (matrox user)?

My core uses not yours frame dropping code!

But sorry! I started my branch simply because mplayer drops frames
on my Duron-700 with some kind of movies.

Also you could say: Nick, implement HW MPEG-1,2,4 decoding extension for VIDIX
to use something like: fread(&video_memory...
and all problems with non monotomous decoding of stream will disappeared.
But nobody send me ATI's documentation without prohibition of using its
context under GPL.
and there are many other users which have top strange software (like ET6000)
without any hopes to get vidix driver at least!
But motivation of this thread is other: MplayerXP HELPS when mplayer doesn't help.
And I want to watch this fact on mplayer's news page or remove that news at all.
It seems that I prove that, at least!
Else I'll prone to decice it as redistributing of FUD.
