Hi Jim, I'm only moderately successful watching web videos even on my Gentoo 32-bit machines. That said I set up my 32-bit chroot on my 64-bit box identically to my wife's 32-bit machine and it works exactly the same as her machine which is about the best I can ask. To watch DVD, which I do all the time in 64-bit, I use xine. It's works perfectly for me in 64-bit. Note that my use flags for the two environments (64-bit and 32-bit chroot) are not the same. I've found that I have to tone down the 64-bit java environment to get the 32-bit java environment to work correctly. Hope this helps, Mark -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
