What color depth are you running X in? I recall having severe problems
playing any sort of video in 24-bit color, so then I changed to 16-bit and I
have no problems. I do notice that when playing most videos the colors of my
desktop background get messed up, but I consider that a trivial problem and
ignore it. (In a couple of hours the background changes, anyway.)
If you run "xine --verbose dvd://" in a command window, do you get any
helpful information about what it's doing or where it quits?
