You're right! Small sized pictures (640x480) do not crash it, while the ones
from my camera without conversion (3072x2304) crash it.
Could you point me to a patch xine-lib to scale automatically?

Thanks! I've read it long ago and forgot that part already.

Strange thing is that I don't see tearing any more. But I'll know where to
look in case it comes back.
By the way, I assume the configuration is overwritten by frontend somehow
since the config_xineliboutput says there is no deinterlacing, while
frontend settings include deinterlacing. Do you know where the frontend
configuration is stored?
The plugins\xineliboutput in VDR config is empty.

Thanks again!
