Well something is not good with mplayer, hey don't get me wrong I love
it, it's by far the best player for Linux! But on my new machine with
an AthlonXP 1700+ (1.47GHz) and a Matrox G400 and 512 Megs of memory
still hangs now and then, usually a few times in a movie. (Yes I'm using
the cache options etc, less cache more hangs). IMHO this is due to that
the I/O probably hangs in the kernel. Without having tried Nicks branch
yet I'd must say that I strongly believe that multithreading (at least
in the file I/O) would make the mplayer experience even better!
