I've used both, and xineliboutput is arguably easier to get working as you
only need the standard xine-lib for your repo, but....
I've chosen over the years to use vdr-xine as it seems to give the most
options to change the front end, as it uses the standard one. I start it
xine --no-splash -Bfpqg -r anamorphic -V
--post vdr_video --post vdr_audio vdr://tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes
> /dev/null 2>&1
It's served me well for 5 years...
