[MPlayer-users] MPlayer cvs tv capture and kernel 2.6.0-test series

as you may or may not know, new 2.6 series kernel dropped the "old" bttv 0.7x
driver and uses 0.9x instead, which main feature is (I think) v4l2.
I have tried it last evening, capturing a star trek show from a vhs of mine,
but it gave pretty bad results. I get lots of B (and S I think) frames,
particularly in the first 3-4 seconds, and then I have other B, but not that
much, for all the lenght of the work.
What's really weird is that this gets worse if I lower resolution, by using
the scale filter: I capture from bttv in 768x576 and then scale to 352:288.
This way I got tons of Bs even after the initial 3-4 seconds, and the
resulting video is unwatchable.
Now, I know maybe mplayer needs something to work well with this new driver,
but can someone confirm this?
