[MPlayer-users] Problems with mplayer on an iBook2 700MHz.

I have been experiencing some problems with my ibook2 700MHz (G3).

The output is quite smooth, with no framedrops (using XVideo, because
there is no Xvidix support for PowerPC).

Nevertheless, there seems to be a problem, possibly related with the
soundcard driver.

The output jumps, like slowing down for miliseconds and then resyncing
again, like if having some pace.

Any ideas?


PS: The same clip work flawlessly with Xine.


The output of the different hardware pieces follows:
