I checked CPU utilization with 'top' during playback and it was around
17% most of the time.
However, you were right about '-cache 10000'. That fixed the problem.
Thanks a lot for you help!
Although I wonder why that was necessary, since I have a powerful CPU,
lots of memory and a new DVD drive. What could differentiate this DVD
from all others that play well?
