It shouldn't be. When I play any DVD through mplayer with the default cache
size, it works fine, but can get choppy in fast-motion scenes. Setting a
high buffer gives me smoother playback, but then crashes my system when the
disc changes layers. I guess I just wanted to check to see if anyone else
had noticed the same problem, or if it was a bug they were actively trying
to correct. I can imagine it being a simple case they didn't check: trying
to read too far on the DVD to fill the buffer, without properly switching
layers. I'm a programmer myself, but have never worked with DVD access, so
I don't know if this _could_ actually be a problem, but that's just my
No one else has noticed this?
