Thanks, i'll try that and see what comes out of it.
While we are at player hicups. I have another, very strange
effect. Strange, because the only computer it shows up is my
laptop. Even more strange because it's hardly reproducable.
When i start MPlayer, the whole system freezes for about
10 to 20 seconds. But it only happens in about one of
50 to 100 cases. I asked a few guys who know the kernel
better than i do, but they did not have an answer on
what it could be. Because the system locks up everything,
i do not even get data from the standard statistics
Anyone an idea what that could be or how i could narrow
