I confirmed that Myth is using mplayer (internal) for viewing my DVD's (which are copied as ISO's onto my hard drive).
My mplayer configuration file (/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf) is:
So I think it is already using xv....and still choppy.
# Default video output is xv, then xvidix, then try others
# Default audio output is alsa, then try others
There is one strange clue: When the DVD first starts to play, motion etc. look great! Then, I select from the DVD menu (usually play movie) and then it becomes choppy. Why would the intro video look great, and then movie look jerky?
