Tried that already. ;-)
But for some reason that I do not understand Xv does not work with
colourdepths of less than 16bit (it uses its own colourspace anyway
and only needs one chromakey, right ?) and lowering the resolution
- besides looking ugly on a TFT notebook display - does not help.
I just wonder how the Window$ drivers do this. The screen does not
seem to switch to 8bit when playing a DVD, and then it needs
1024x768x16bit = 1.4 MB, so there is only about 1 MB left for doing
an overlay in DVD resolution, is this enough ?
