Yes, if the extra CPU load by mplayer is not even noticeable when playing back
VDR recordings, and it is not prone to any type or desync, then I vote we all
try to figure out what mplayer is doing and repeat it. Whats a few extra CPU
cycles if it becomes much much more stable in the end.

Thanks everyone for chiming in on this one.  I really hope that this time we can
stop passing the buck and just git'r done. :)

Best Regards.
